Ding, Lin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study examines progression trends of Chinese students' scientific reasoning skills across grade levels from elementary school to university. A large-scale survey using the Classroom Test of Scientific Reasoning (CTSR) was conducted with 2669 Chinese students at 13 grade levels (grades 4-16). The construct validity of the CTSR was first…

Yao, Yiling; Kong, Qiping; Cai, Jinfa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Students in Shanghai ranked at the top in mathematics on the past two assessments of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA). However, even though Asian students in general, and Chinese students in particular, ranked at the top in mathematics, we know little about Shanghai students' subjective well-being (SWB). This paper reports…

Medina-Jerez, William; Middleton, Kyndra V.; Orihuela-Rabaza, Walter – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The way in which students view science and its practitioners, particularly during their late elementary and early secondary grade levels, has been at the core of numerous studies dating back to research by Mead & Metraux (Science 126:384-390, "1957"). In this study, we used the Draw-a-Scientist Test Checklist developed by Finson,…

Lu, Chow-Chin; Chen, Yueh-Yun; Chen, Chen-Wei – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The central focus of this study was the development, use and evaluation of CD-ROM picture books in elementary school science teaching. Three CD-ROM picture books based on the Campus Insects unit from the new elementary school science curriculum in Taiwan were developed. A quasi-experimental method was used to compare the use of the CD-ROMs and…
