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…

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)…

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…

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…

George-Williams, Stephen R.; Ziebell, Angela L.; Thompson, Christopher D.; Overton, Tina L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Previous work at Monash University has shown that students recognise that inquiry-, problem-, context- and industry-based experiments were better contextualised, more open to decision making and aided in the development of scientific and transferable skills. This study investigated whether these gains persisted over a longer time scale, rather…

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…

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…

Kang, Jingoo; Hense, Jonathan; Scheersoi, Annette; Keinonen, Tuula – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Gender disparities in STEM fields have been under extensive study, the focus of which has been on future career aspirations. However, the primary phases in gender differences are still ambiguous when examined from this perspective, possibly due to the fact that most of the studies have targeted samples of upper secondary school or college…

Vojír, Karel; Rusek, Martin – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The number of science education research papers has been rapidly rising in recent years. This number has been particularly influenced by researchers from non-English speaking countries who contribute to the field. With this number of papers, literature reviews gain in importance as they help researchers more easily orient themselves in problem…

Ropohl, Mathias; Rönnebeck, Silke – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Feedback is an essential formative assessment practice that has the potential to influence student learning and achievement positively. Providing effective feedback, however, is a challenging task for teachers. Especially beginning teachers struggle with the provision of information that supports students in developing and improving their…

Herranen, Jaana; Kousa, Päivi; Fooladi, Erik; Aksela, Maija – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The aim of this study is to provide an understanding of context-based inquiry teaching within a humanistic perspective on science education by studying pre-service teachers' beliefs about inquiry and their implementations of inquiry in their context-based teaching sequences. Therefore, five pre-service teachers enrolled in a university…

Fridberg, Marie; Jonsson, Agneta; Redfors, Andreas; Thulin, Susanne – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper describes analysis of teaching instances that are part of an in-service preschool teachers programme about chemistry and physics in preschool. The aim is to develop knowledge about the communication established between teacher and children in relation to an object of learning, specifically the role of intersubjective communication in…

Gai, Lichun; Zheng, Changlong; Lederman, Norman G.; Lederman, Judith S.; Jiao, Huihong – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The purpose of this study is to examine the salient characteristics of the 'Question-Answer Process' (QAP) in senior high school chemistry class between pre- and in-service teachers. We first developed the 'Instrument of Question-Answer Process' (IQAP), and then, applied it to compare salient characteristics of QAP between pre- and in-service…

Tang, Kok-Sing; Won, Mihye; Treagust, David – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This article presents the development, description, application, and discussion of an analytical framework to examine students' drawings of scientific concepts and processes. Student-generated representation, particularly drawing, is increasingly emphasised as an important learning strategy to help students reason, explain, and demonstrate their…
