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…

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…

Gong, Xiaoyang; Bergey, Bradley W. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Research points to the important role achievement emotions play in academic performance and career choices, yet few studies have examined achievement emotions in non-Western contexts. The current study extends this research base by examining students' achievement emotions among 103 eleventh-grade high school chemistry students in China. Using…

Lin, Xiao-Fan; Tang, Dandan; Shen, Weipeng; Liang, Zhong-Mei; Tang, Yaner; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study examines the correlations between perceived technology-assisted teacher support; student hardiness (i.e. individual commitment, challenge, and control); and technology-embedded scientific inquiry (TESI) using a mediational model approach. Data were gathered from the series of questionnaires administered to 1566 Chinese students with an…

Wang, Yan; Lavonen, Jari; Tirri, Kirsi – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This research compared how the scientific literacy-related goals of the current Chinese and Finnish national science curricula at primary school level are actualised using a revised Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) scientific literacy framework in the content analysis of the curricula. The content of the curricula focuses…

Lin, Xiao-Fan; Tang, Dandan; Lin, Xuanjun; Liang, Zhong-Mei; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study aimed to explore the relationships between students' perceived learning practices and associated self-efficacies regarding mobile-assisted seamless science learning. The learning practices for mobile-assisted seamless science learning questionnaire was developed with three scales that denote learning supported by mobile technology.…

Du, Xin; Wong, Billy – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The concept of science capital has a growing influence in science education research for understanding young people's science trajectories. Popularised in the UK, this paper aims to extend and evaluate the applicability of science capital in the context of China by drawing on PISA2015. More specifically, we make use of existing items in the…

Zhu, Yuanze – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In recent years, research on students' scientific competencies has generated much discussion. According to the PISA 2015 Assessment and Analytical Framework, both scientific competencies and attitudes towards science -- interest in science, valuing scientific approaches to enquiry (or epistemological beliefs about science), and environmental…

Luo, Tian; Wang, Jian; Liu, Xiufeng; Zhou, Jiangping – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The aim of this study was to develop a scale to measure students' STEM continuing motivation (CM). In accordance with the conceptualisation of CM by Maehr (1976. Continuing motivation: An analysis of a seldom considered educational outcome. "Review of Educational Research," 46(3), 443-462. doi:10.3102/00346543046003443), we define STEM…

Deng, Yang; Kelly, Gregory J.; Deng, Shili – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Scientific writing is related to the practice of communicating scientific knowledge. This study treats scientific writing as a social practice, taking as its premise the notion that participating in related activities such as reading, peer evaluation, and discussion would positively affect the competence of students' scientific writing, by…

Wei, Bing; Chen, Nan – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In this study, a sociocultural perspective was adopted to understand the interplay between identity and agency in a context of science education reform in China. The manifestation of agency and the interaction between identity and agency were examined with two beginning science teachers teaching with practical work in high school. As part of this…

Nie, Ying; Xiao, Yang; Fritchman, Joseph C.; Liu, Qiaoyi; Han, Jing; Xiong, Jianwen; Bao, Lei – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Knowledge integration is essential to achieve deep conceptual understanding, which requires students to develop well-connected knowledge structures through the central idea of a concept. To effectively represent and analyze knowledge integration, a conceptual framework model on force and motion is developed to map learners' knowledge structures in…

Ha, Minsu; Wei, Xin; Wang, Jian; Hou, Dan; Nehm, Ross H. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The goal of our study was to examine a large (>400), cross-sectional sample of Chinese pre-service biology teachers (PBTs) in order to document their evolution acceptance levels, evolution knowledge, and evolutionary reasoning patterns. This approach was taken in order to better understand the degree to which particular evolutionary reasoning…

Yang, Wenyuan; Liu, Cheng; Liu, Enshan – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Since inquiry was first introduced to science education, a lot of inquiry-based tasks have appeared in textbooks for supporting an inquiry-based approach. These tasks have great potential to direct the implementation of an inquiry-based approach, as teachers rely heavily on the use of existing instructional materials in most K-12 classrooms.…

Lin, Feng; Chan, Carol K. K. – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
This study examined the role of computer-supported knowledge-building discourse and epistemic reflection in promoting elementary-school students' scientific epistemology and science learning. The participants were 39 Grade 5 students who were collectively pursuing ideas and inquiry for knowledge advance using Knowledge Forum (KF) while studying a…
