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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Aditomo, Anindito; Klieme, Eckhard – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Inquiry-based science instruction is widely advocated, but studies based on international large-scale assessments often show inquiry to be negatively associated with achievement. We re-examine this issue by examining whether the association between inquiry and learning depends upon the provision of teacher guidance. Participants were 151,721…

Lytzerinou, Evangelia; Iordanou, Kalypso – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The aim of the present study was to examine science and non-science education secondary school teachers' skill to evaluate arguments, and how this skill relates to their skill to construct arguments and to their perceptions about their ability to teach argumentation skills effectively. The study also examined whether teachers' argument skills and…

Stammes, Hanna; Henze, Ineke; Barendsen, Erik; de Vries, Marc – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Bringing design practices to chemistry education is gaining interest with recent science curriculum reforms emphasising design, and calls for integrated STEM education. Design is a central practice in the chemistry discipline, and could foster meaningful chemistry education. Although chemistry teachers are key in bringing design to chemistry…

Heuckmann, Benedikt; Hammann, Marcus; Asshoff, Roman – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study investigated factors influencing teachers' intention and willingness to teach about cancer in the context of the theory of planned behaviour. Because teaching about cancer is mandatory in Germany, we compared n=355 teachers' intention to teach about cancer under mandatory conditions and their willingness to teach about cancer if they…

Wei, Bing; Chen, Yue – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The term 'experiment' is used in different ways to mean different things in school science. This study examines the meanings of 'experiment' and how they have changed in the intended chemistry curriculum (ICC) in China since the early 1950s. A mixed methodology was adopted to analyse the 11 ICC documents from a socio-historical perspective. The…

Tang, Xing; Zhang, Danhui – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Informal science learning has been proven to have effects on a variety of science learning outcomes. This study explored the direct and indirect influence of both prior and current informal science learning on science performance by using data from the Programme for International Student Assessment 2015. More than ten kinds of informal science…
