Waters, David; Jilakara, Rahul – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
This study investigates the relationship between study methods and exam performance in introductory physics courses. Data were collected over 3 years through surveys to examine students' study habits, perceived effectiveness of techniques, and the correlation between time allocation and exam grades. Results indicate that high-achieving students…

Wilson, Sarah Beth; Varma-Nelson, Pratibha – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2021
Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) is a small-group, collaborative problem-solving model that has significantly increased student performance in a variety of chemistry undergraduate courses and other STEM courses. Cyber Peer-Led Team Learning (cPLTL), an online adaptation of PLTL, has been effective in general chemistry courses, but this study was the…

Bush, Eliot C.; Adolph, Stephen C.; Donaldson-Matasci, Matina C.; Hur, Jae; Schulz, Danae – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2021
This paper describes an introductory biology course for undergraduates that heavily incorporates quantitative problem solving in activities and homework assignments. The course is broken up into a series of units, each organized around a motivating biological question or theme. Homework assignments address the theme or question, and typically…

Wallace, Colin S.; Prather, Edward E.; Milsom, John A.; Johns, Ken; Manne, Srin – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2021
In this paper we put forth a model for physics course reform that uniquely uses proven, research-based active-learning strategies to help students improve their physics knowledge and problem-solving skills. In this study, we compared the exam performance of students in two sections of the same introductory physics course. One section (the…

McCance, Katherine; Weston, Timothy; Niemeyer, Emily – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
In this article, the authors describe how classroom observations were used to characterize differences in instructional practices among undergraduate science courses. Student and faculty behaviors and dialogues were quantified using the Teaching Dimensions Observation Protocol (TDOP) in introductory science courses across multiple disciplines…

Kaya, Erdogan; Newley, Anna; Yesilyurt, Ezgi; Deniz, Hasan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
With the release of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), assessing K-12 science teachers' self-efficacy in Computational Thinking (CT) is an important research gap to study. Bandura defines self-efficacy as awareness of the individual's potential and capabilities to accomplish a goal. Teaching efficacy beliefs is a significant identifier…

Dahlberg, Caroline L.; Wiggins, Benjamin L.; Lee, Suzanne R.; Leaf, David S.; Lily, Leah S.; Jordt, Hannah; Johnson, Tiara J. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Reflection and recalibration, two key hallmarks of metacognition, are important elements of productive problem solving in scientific research. Often, training in these skills is obtained informally through direct exposure to independent research after college. Although some undergraduate students participate in extra- or co-curricular research…

Farah, Kimberly S.; Montepare, Joann M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Our population is aging, calling for communities to be more age friendly and younger individuals to be more aware of aging issues that will impact their personal and professional lives. However, colleges provide few opportunities for students to prepare themselves for a more age-diverse world. Drawing on a new general education core curriculum…

Ruder, Suzanne M.; Stanford, Courtney; Gandhi, Anand – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Active learning classrooms provide an ideal opportunity to develop key workplace skills such as teamwork, information processing, critical thinking, and problem solving. Although many active learning pedagogies implicitly support student development of these skills, the role of the instructor in explicitly prompting and assessing these skills in…

Addis, Elizabeth A.; Powell-Coffman, Jo Anne – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The Association of American Colleges and Universities ranks multiple process of science (POS) skills among the top-10 skills employers seek in college graduates. As part of an effort to explore and align the emphasis on POS skills in our science departments, we sought three things: (a) to determine if faculty and students felt enough time was…

Zare, Richard N.; Cox, Charles T., Jr.; Murphy, Katherine; Bayas, Camille – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
In large, introductory courses, instructors and teaching assistants often struggle to provide detailed feedback on student homework in a timely manner. Here we describe a peer-reviewed homework system that provides quick turnaround while offering flexibility in the construction of homework problems. Homework is administered through a cycle, which…

Phillips, Jeffrey A.; Clemmer, Katharine W.; McCallum, Jeremy E. B.; Zachariah, Thomas M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Well-developed, problem-solving skills are essential for any student enrolled in a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) course as well as for graduates in the workforce. One of the most essential skills is the ability to monitor one's own progress and understanding while solving a problem. Successful monitoring during the…

Fautch, Jessica M.; Foresman, James B. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Introductory science courses serve a population of students in the major (i.e., chemistry) as well as those students outside the discipline (i.e., premed, biology, engineering). In an effort to help this diverse population of students connect personally with the content of the course, we sought ways to include student-centered activities, provide…
