Willis, William K.; Williamson, Vickie M.; Chuu, Eric; Dabney, Alan R. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
In an effort to investigate the factors that lead to success in general chemistry, the Math-Up Skills Test (MUST) and common questions were used along with a student characteristic questionnaire. The MUST is a 20-item instrument to measure mathematics fluency, which is done without a calculator with a 15-min time limit. It has been shown as a…

Faulconer, E. K.; Griffith, J. C. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Learning chemistry in an online environment may have multiple sources of anxiety for students, including chemistry anxiety, math anxiety, computer anxiety, and trait anxiety (personality attribute of proneness to experience anxiety). While previous research has explored relationships between math and chemistry anxiety in a traditional setting, no…

Mawasi, Areej; Nagy, Peter; Finn, Ed; Wylie, Ruth – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Boasting a wide range of interactive and engaging features, narrative-based learning has become increasingly popular in educational settings. Narrative-based instructional approaches engage students in a novel set of engaging experiences for educational purposes. Although it is not a new concept, the implications of narrative-based learning for…

Li, Mingyang; Donnelly-Hermosillo, Dermot Francis; Click, Jennifer – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Numerous studies illustrate the value of simulations or project-based learning approaches to enhance the learning of science. Simulations can help students connect across macroscopic, microscopic, and symbolic representations of scientific phenomena, while project-based learning can provide a meaningful narrative and activities for students to…

Akiri, Effrat; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
The first years of teaching are crucial for novice teachers' integration into and retainment in the education system. The support they receive from experienced teachers impacts their professional development. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers require specialized support from domain-specific mentors. In this study,…

Shiroda, Megan; Uhl, Juli D.; Urban-Lurain, Mark; Haudek, Kevin C. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Constructed response (CR) assessments allow students to demonstrate understanding of complex topics and provide teachers with deeper insight into student thinking. Computer scoring models (CSMs) remove the barrier of increased time and effort, making CR more accessible. As CSMs are commonly created using responses from research-intensive colleges…

Aydogan, Berna; Çakiroglu, Jale – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of engineering design-based instruction (EDBI) on 7th grade students' nature of engineering (NOE) views. Quantitative research to evaluate students' NOE views was operated through a questionnaire which is "Views for Nature of Engineering -Elementary School Version (VNOE-E)" as pre-…

Arik, Merve; Topçu, Mustafa Sami – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Studies maintain that computational thinking (CT) is associated with science content and scientific processes as well as with many disciplines. It is thought that designing teaching processes in which science and CT processes take place together makes science learning more meaningful. With this in mind, in this study, the researchers integrated…

Grapin, Scott E.; Llosa, Lorena; Haas, Alison; Lee, Okhee – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Computational models are increasingly being used in K-12 science classrooms to engage students in developing and testing explanations of phenomena. However, research has only begun to consider whether integrating computational models into science instruction could be particularly beneficial to students from diverse backgrounds, including a…

Lee, Victor R.; Delaney, Victoria – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
As data become more available and integrated into daily life, there has been growing interest in developing data science curricula for youth in conjunction with scientific practices and classroom technologies. However, the "what" and "how" of data science in pre-collegiate education have not yet reached consensus. This paper…

Love, Tyler S. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Integrated STEM labs and makerspaces have become increasingly common in P-16 schools, higher education residence halls, libraries, and community centers. Although these collaborative learning spaces provide increased access to cross-cutting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) practices, they pose inherent safety risks that are…

DeCoito, Isha; Estaiteyeh, Mohammed – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, school closures were mandated by governments across the globe. This necessitated an abrupt shift to online/distance teaching. Through a mixed-methods study, the authors explored STEM teachers' transition to online teaching and learning in a Canadian context. This subset of the larger study investigated: (1) teachers'…

Le, Branda; Lawrie, Gwendolyn A.; Wang, Jack T. H. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
As students transition into tertiary blended learning environments, their digital literacy in terms of technical capabilities have potential to impact on their access to digital resources. The first foundational year of STEM degrees includes compulsory courses across a broad range of scientific areas, each of which incorporates online technology…

Elford, Daniel; Lancaster, Simon J.; Jones, Garth A. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
Augmented reality (AR) has the capacity to afford a virtual experience that obviates the reliance on using two-dimensional representations of 3D molecules for teaching stereochemistry to undergraduate students. Using a combination of quantitative instruments and qualitative surveys/interviews, this study explored the relationships between…

Chou, Ren-Jye; Liang, Chih-Ping; Huang, Li-yu; She, Hsiao-Ching – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2022
This study compared the effectiveness of online skeuomorphic physics inquiry-based learning with and without simulation on 8th-grade students' performance of scientific inquiry involving the spring unit. Two classes (58 students) were assigned to the online skeuomorphic physics inquiry-based learning with simulation, and two classes (59 students)…
