Remmen, Kari Beate; Frøyland, Merethe – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Students struggle with observing scientifically and connecting observations to scientific theory. This study investigates how students actually use observation in rock classification -- a classical practical task in science education. To describe the level of students' use of observation, data was collected by videotaping 19 small student groups…

Oon, P. -T.; Cheng, M. M. W.; Wong, A. S. L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Understanding secondary student attitudes towards science (SAS) is important if we are to increase the number and diversity of students who pursue STEM fields and address the gender imbalance in STEM careers. Existing studies that measured SAS tended to directly translate an ordinal scale (e.g., from 'strongly agree' to 'strongly disagree') into a…

Whitworth, Brooke A.; Rubino-Hare, Lori; Bloom, Nena E.; Walker, Megan C.; Arendt, Kayla R. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This design-based research study examined the first two cycles of development, enactment, analysis, and redesign of the Power of Data (POD) Facilitation Academy. Professional Learning and Development (PLD) providers' geospatial technology (GST) skills, understanding of programme principles, preparation, and stages of concern for implementing POD…

Wang, Jianlan – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Despite the importance of scientific argumentation, it rarely occurs in science classrooms. Researchers have designed argumentation interventions to bridge this gap, but those efforts have limited impacts on transforming existing classroom practices. Argumentation is a linguistically social interaction. It is necessary to go beyond understanding…

García-Pérez, Omar; Inda-Caro, Mercedes; Fernández-García, Carmen-María; Torío-López, Susana – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
There is a need to improve students' motivation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Student's academic choices are significantly influenced by parental behaviours and even more so by how those behaviours are perceived by the students. The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of perceived family…

Vilia, Paulo; Candeias, Adelinda A. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The importance of attitudes and other variables of the affective domain in education is acknowledged for a long time. In this study, we used an attitude questionnaire to survey 498 Portuguese 9th-grade students to determine the predictive ability of the attitudes towards the discipline of Physics-chemistry on school achievement. Possible gender…

Mesci, Günkut; Çavus-Güngören, Seda; Yesildag-Hasancebi, Funda – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine how pre-service science teachers develop their understandings of nature of scientific inquiry during the science laboratory course with preparing 5E based lesson plans, and how they transfer those understandings into their teaching practices. All data were collected and analysed qualitatively by using the…

Cooper, Grant; Berry, Amanda – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Adding to concerns about falling participation rates in science education, the profile of certain student groups who go on to study decreases, particularly as the year level increases. The aim of this paper is to examine if, and in what ways, demographic factors predict students' post-16 participation in biology, physics, chemistry and earth/space…

Massolt, Joost; Borowski, Andreas – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Pre-service physics teachers often do not recognise the relevance for their future career in their university content knowledge courses. A lower perceived relevance can, however, have a negative effect on their motivation and on their academic success. Several intervention studies have been undertaken with the goal to increase this perceived…

Mansour, Nasser – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study explored the interplay between science teachers' pedagogical beliefs, scientific evidence, and diversity. This study adopts a sociocultural view of science that views science as a cultural way of knowing, and acknowledges that it is laden with cultural understandings, interpretations, and a language of its own. This paper reports…

Fitzgerald, Angela – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
At a basic level, it makes sense to involve pre-service teachers in school-based experiences (SBE) as a way of preparing them for the teaching profession. Little is known, however, about how SBEs might prepare pre-service teachers as future teachers of particular learning areas. The purpose of this study was to explore the impacts and highlight…

Skarstein, Tuula H.; Skarstein, Frode – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study investigates early childhood (EC) student-teachers' species identification skills and their views on the importance of species knowledge. The study used a mixed methods approach, including a species identification test and a questionnaire, and involved 186 Norwegian EC student-teachers. Our results reveal that species knowledge of…

Stern, Florian; Kampourakis, Kostas; Delaval, Marine; Müller, Andreas – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
In this article, we describe the main phases in the development and validation of a questionnaire measuring secondary students' teleology and essentialism conceptions in the context of genetics. The validation process involved 714 Swiss and French secondary school students from 14 different schools. The process included interviews, several pilot…

Salta, Katerina; Koulougliotis, Dionysios – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study aimed at investigating the issue of domain specificity of motivation across specific science disciplines (chemistry and physics) in combination with influencing factors related with students' academic major and gender. A clustered sampling was used to select 281 participants who were undergraduate students (105 males and 176 females)…

Pei, Xinning; Jin, Yinglian; Zheng, Tainian; Zhao, Jian – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
To understand the longitudinal effect of a technology-enhanced learning (TEL) environment with reflective guidance on sixth-grade students' learning in a photosynthesis unit in Shanghai, we designed a quasi-experimental longitudinal study with a pre-test and three post-tests, complemented by an examination of students' log data. Our findings show…
