Wu, Huang; Shen, Jianping; Zhang, Ya; Zheng, Yunzheng – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The goal of this study was to estimate the relationships among principal leadership, teacher-related factors (e.g. job satisfaction, self-efficacy of teaching, and collaboration), and student achievement in science. With the United States sample of Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2015 data, we used a series of two-level…

Ekinci, Serkan; Sen, Ahmet Ilhan – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
There is a close relationship between chemistry and physics in the context of atomic structure, which is usually covered in both courses at the secondary-school level. However, little emphasis has been put on determining whether the students developed correct understanding of the quantum structure when they studied it in both the courses. The…

Prieto-Rodriguez, Elena; Sincock, Kristina; Blackmore, Karen – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
There are numerous interventions worldwide targeting young people's participation in STEM. While gender imbalance seems to be a focus of many of these interventions, it is not clear how many specifically target females, and from those that do, what their characteristics and strengths are. We address this gap in the existing literature by…

Zarkadis, Nikolaos; Papageorgiou, George – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The present work explores students' repertoire of explicit knowledge fragments relevant to the atomic structure, seeking to answer which of those and through which routes are activated by students when constructing their explanations for some everyday situations. For this purpose, six tasks describing different situations were given to 225…

Halawa, Suarman; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Zhang, Wen-Xin; Kuo, Yen-Ruey; Wu, Jen-Yi – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study analyzed 2008-2017 articles in primary science education journals to explore the features and trends of teaching strategies for scientific practices. Five criteria were used to select the articles: (1) emphasizing inquiry teaching in either the theoretical framework or the findings section, (2) incorporating teaching strategies into…

Quinlan, Catherine L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Argumentation research often addresses the nature of argumentation as a complex set of procedures that can aid learning of complex scientific knowledge and practices. Thus, studies might look at transfer of knowledge and processes to specific science domains or to other types of procedural knowledge, such as teacher implementation in the…

Kaderavek, Joan N.; Paprzycki, Peter; Czerniak, Charlene M.; Hapgood, Susanna; Mentzer, Gale; Molitor, Scott; Mendenhall, Robert – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study investigated if student placement in a primary grade 1-3 classroom with a teacher who had been trained in a U.S. science Framework-aligned [National Research Council. (2012). "A framework for K-12 science education: Practices, crosscutting concepts and core ideas." The National Academies Press] professional development science…

Williams, Melanie; Tang, K.-S. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
In response to the globally escalating number of language learners tasked with learning science through a foreign language, this review seeks to bring new perspectives by reframing research findings, still dominated by historical language assumptions, through a contemporary language lens. We aim to unearth, amalgamate and expose the potentials of…

Sengul, Ozden; Enderle, Patrick James; Schwartz, Renee S. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study aimed to explore the relationship between science teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of argumentation, epistemological beliefs, and classroom practices. Participants were three urban science teachers who were selected among 12 teachers from a professional development (PD) program focusing on Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI)…

Osterhaus, Christopher; Koerber, Susanne; Sodian, Beate – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Scientific reasoning is a crucial ability in modern knowledge societies. An increasing body of developmental and educational research shows that already primary-school children possess emerging scientific-reasoning skills. The Science-P Reasoning Inventory (SPR-I) is a novel classroom-based paper-and-pencil instrument that was developed to measure…

BouJaoude, Saouma; Noureddine, Razan – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The purpose of this study was to investigate if science textbooks prepare students for the twenty-first-century and if and how science and religion are depicted in science textbooks in Arab countries where religion, especially Islam, plays a role in the lives of individuals and possibly in the understandings of science. The analysis was conducted…

Balabanoff, Morgan E.; Al Fulaiti, Haiyan; Bhusal, Shikshya; Harrold, Archer; Moon, Alena C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Light is used ubiquitously across science and engineering to explore, characterise, understand matter, and catalyse processes. Relative to its utility in science and engineering, very little research has been conducted on how students develop an understanding of light-matter interactions, especially at the quantum level, which is necessary to…

Hanson, Sandra L.; Krywult-Albanska, Malgorzata – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
A comparative gender framework and cross-national data are used to examine women's access to STEM education in Poland and cross-nationally. The transition to STEM occupations is also considered. Findings on indicators of girl's achievement in STEM education at the secondary level in Poland show gender imbalance, but Poland is doing better than…

Concannon, James P.; Brown, Patrick L.; Lederman, Norman G.; Lederman, Judith S. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The purposes of this study were to (1) investigate 127 high school students' views about scientific inquiry at different grade levels, and (2) to describe factors such as the teacher's views about scientific inquiry, his teaching, and his curriculum that facilitated or constrained students' views about scientific inquiry. The majority of students…
