Berge, Maria; Danielsson, Anna; Lidar, Malena – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2020
Background: Physics is often seen as a discipline with difficult content, and one that is difficult to identify with. Socialisation processes at the upper secondary school level are of particular interest as these may be linked to the subsequent low and uneven participation in university physics. Focusing on how norms are construed in physics…

Stamer, Insa; Pönicke, Hanno; Tirre, Frederike; Laherto, Antti; Höffler, Tim; Schwarzer, Stefan; Parchmann, Ilka – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2020
Background: Many students have incomplete or incorrect perceptions of science and scientists. These simplified images, mediated by media or influential agents of socialisation, result in common stereotypes. Especially for occupational choices it is important to convey an authentic image about science and scientists. Purpose: One manner to convey…

Dorfner, Tobias; Förtsch, Christian; Neuhaus, Birgit J. – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2020
Educational standards and instructional frameworks aim to foster students' scientific literacy, especially their conceptual knowledge. Previous research has examined several instructional approaches to foster students' conceptual learning. Reliable and adequate use of technical terms in science instruction is also essential for fostering students'…

Meyer, Corlia; Guenther, Lars; Joubert, Marina – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: People's perceptions of scientists have repeatedly been investigated using the Draw-a-Scientist Test (DAST). The test is used to identify people's (stereotypical) images of scientists, which might affect attitudes towards science and science-related career choices. Purpose: The current study has two goals. (1) Applying the DAST at a…

Wang, Ya-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: Despite the growing body of research on self-efficacy, previous studies have failed to clarify exactly how it is constructed. Meanwhile, the literature indicates that, in Taiwan, junior high school students tend to show lower self-efficacy in learning science compared with elementary and senior high school students. Purpose: This study…
