Bergeler, Elmar; Read, Michelle F. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
This study aimed to compare the online and face-to-face teaching of a required algebra-based physics course for non-physics majors in large-enrollment course sections. The study design is quasi-experimental; the students self-selected to enroll in either the fully online and asynchronous course or the face-to-face course. In this study, we look at…

Abdinejad, Maryam; Talaie, Borzu; Qorbani, Hossain S.; Dalili, Shadi – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Visualizing molecular conformations and complex compound structures and chemical transformations in 3D is one of the most difficult tasks for undergraduate chemistry students. Modern computational technologies have revolutionized every aspect of our lives, including education. As a result, many researchers and educators are working on enhancing…

Lin, Chien-Liang; Tsai, Chun-Yen – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
The development of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Liberal Arts, and Mathematics) curricula has emerged in the past decade. A pedagogical STEAM (Scaffolding, Tutoring, Engaging, Argumentation, and Modeling) model was proposed in this study to implement interdisciplinary STEAM curricula. The effects of this model on students' project…

Stenlund, Jörgen Ingemar; Schönborn, Konrad Janek; Tibell, Lena Anna Elisabet – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Central to evolution is the concept of a common ancestry from which all life has emerged over immense time scales, but learning and teaching temporal aspects of evolution remain challenging. This study investigated students' interpretation of evolutionary time when engaging with a multi-touch tabletop application called DeepTree, a dynamic…

Wulff, Peter; Buschhüter, David; Westphal, Andrea; Nowak, Anna; Becker, Lisa; Robalino, Hugo; Stede, Manfred; Borowski, Andreas – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Reflecting in written form on one's teaching enactments has been considered a facilitator for teachers' professional growth in university-based preservice teacher education. Writing a structured reflection can be facilitated through external feedback. However, researchers noted that feedback in preservice teacher education often relies on…

Reeves, Shalaunda M.; Crippen, Kent J. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Current technology has the capacity for affording a virtual experience that challenges the notion of a teaching laboratory for undergraduate science and engineering students. Though the potential of virtual laboratories (V-Labs) has been extolled and investigated in a number of areas, this research has not been synthesized for the context of…

Bielik, Tom; Fonio, Ehud; Feinerman, Ofer; Duncan, Ravit Golan; Levy, Sharona T. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Complex systems are made up of many entities, whose interactions emerge into distinct collective patterns. Computational modeling platforms can provide a powerful means to investigate emergent phenomena in complex systems. Some research has been carried out in recent years about promoting students' modeling practices, specifically using…

Nabulsi, Leena; Nguyen, Amy; Odeleye, Oluwatobi – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Online homework systems have been shown to help student achievement in chemistry courses. This study sought to compare the levels of knowledge retention in students over the course of a semester, using two different types of homework systems--the adaptive-responsive system and the traditional-responsive system. Two sections of a first semester…

Tsinajinie, Garrison; Kirboyun, Sevgi; Hong, Sunggye – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
A qualitative study was conducted to understand how middle and high school students with visual impairments (VI) engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The Readiness Academy, a Project-Based Learning (PBL) intervention, was designed to provide a week-long, immersive, outdoor, and inquiry-based science education program…

Colorado, Henry A.; Mendoza, David E.; Valencia, Fernando L. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
This research presents results for the design and creation of supporting teaching materials using additive manufacturing. The materials are inspired by selected artwork of four animal species, which belong to a collection from the museum of the University of Antioquia. The topic selected was fauna in Colombia, and the animals in question were…

Sung, Shannon H.; Li, Chenglu; Chen, Guanhua; Huang, Xudong; Xie, Charles; Massicotte, Joyce; Shen, Ji – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
In this paper, we demonstrate how machine learning could be used to quickly assess a student's multimodal representational thinking. Multimodal representational thinking is the complex construct that encodes how students form conceptual, perceptual, graphical, or mathematical symbols in their mind. The augmented reality (AR) technology is adopted…

Rosenberg, Joshua M.; Krist, Christina – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Assessing students' participation in science practices presents several challenges, especially when aiming to differentiate meaningful (vs. rote) forms of participation. In this study, we sought to use machine learning (ML) for a novel purpose in science assessment: developing a construct map for students' "consideration of generality,"…

Jescovitch, Lauren N.; Scott, Emily E.; Cerchiara, Jack A.; Merrill, John; Urban-Lurain, Mark; Doherty, Jennifer H.; Haudek, Kevin C. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
We systematically compared two coding approaches to generate training datasets for machine learning (ML): (1) a holistic approach based on learning progression levels; and (2) a dichotomous, analytic approach of multiple concepts in student reasoning, deconstructed from holistic rubrics. We evaluated four constructed response assessment items for…

Lee, Hee-Sun; Gweon, Gey-Hong; Lord, Trudi; Paessel, Noah; Pallant, Amy; Pryputniewicz, Sarah – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
A design study was conducted to test a machine learning (ML)-enabled automated feedback system developed to support students' revision of scientific arguments using data from published sources and simulations. This paper focuses on three simulation-based scientific argumentation tasks called Trap, Aquifer, and Supply. These tasks were part of an…

Wang, Cong; Liu, Xiufeng; Wang, Lei; Sun, Ying; Zhang, Hongyan – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Assessing scientific argumentation is one of main challenges in science education. Constructed-response (CR) items can be used to measure the coherence of student ideas and inform science instruction on argumentation. Published research on automated scoring of CR items has been conducted mostly in English writing, rarely in other languages. The…
