Kruse, Jerrid; Kent-Schneider, Isaiah; Voss, Sarah; Zacharski, Kinsey; Rockefeller, Molly – Research in Science Education, 2022
While the importance of explicit and reflective NOS instruction is clear in the literature, questions remain about how to enact such instruction. That is, literature is sometimes unclear in defining how to enact explicit and reflective NOS instruction. While some authors recommend using questions (e.g., Clough 2007) to enact effective NOS…

Chen, Sitong; Wei, Bing – Research in Science Education, 2022
Students' science identity has been identified as an important construct that positively influences their learning engagement, persistence, and career intentions in science. This paper reported the process of developing and validating an instrument that can be used to assess high school students' science identity. The development of this…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B.; Del Carlo, Dawn I.; Wayson, Jessica – Research in Science Education, 2022
Despite the promotion of data-driven or data-informed instructional practices in teacher education and professional development, past research indicates that teachers use a limited number of sources for student data to make short-term adjustments to their teaching in order to address deficiencies in student learning. Science teachers, with a more…

Villanueva Baselga, Sergio; Marimon Garrido, Oriol; González Burón, Helena – Research in Science Education, 2022
This study presents findings from testing an innovative student-centred drama-based teaching methodology for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines for secondary school students. The method, based on performances, was tested in two case studies, Spain and the UK, on a sample of 2089 students. These performances have…

Lau, Kwok-Chi; Ho, Sui-Chu Esther – Research in Science Education, 2022
This study analyzes how students' reported teaching practices of their teachers and their attitudes towards science are related to the science achievements of four high-performing countries/economies in PISA 2015: Hong Kong, China, Canada, and Finland. A study of these regions can shed light on the commonalities of and differences between the…

Wang, Jianlan; Li, Qiqi; Luo, Ying – Research in Science Education, 2022
High-stakes testing (HST) is critical in the educational system of East-Asian countries like China, and the ongoing standards-based reform in many Western countries like the USA. HST has been criticized for corrupting an educational system through means like disengaging students from authentic learning. It seems that students' affective learning…

Erduran, Sibel; Guilfoyle, Liam; Park, Wonyong – Research in Science Education, 2022
Argumentation, the justification of claims with reasons and/or evidence, has emerged as a significant educational goal in science education in recent years. It has also been noted as an important pedagogical approach in numerous school subjects. Yet, there is limited understanding of how teachers' views of argumentation and its teaching compare in…

Wolf, Vanessa; Hsiao, Valerie; Rodriguez, Brandon; Min, Ashley; Mayorga, Jill; Ashcroft, Jared – Research in Science Education, 2022
Remote access technology in STEM education fills dual roles as an educational tool to deliver science education (Educational Technology) and as a means to teach about technology itself (Technology Education). A five-lesson sequence was introduced to 11 and 12-year-old students at an urban school. The lesson sequences were inquiry-based, hands-on,…

You, Hye Sun; Park, Sunyoung; Marshall, Jill A.; Delgado, Cesar – Research in Science Education, 2022
Growing interest in interdisciplinary (ID) understanding has led to the recent development of four ID assessments, none of which have previously been comprehensively validated. Sources of evidence for the validity of tests include construct validity, such as the internal structure of the test. ID tests may (and should) test both disciplinary (D)…

Murphy, Steve – Research in Science Education, 2022
Science education is essential for sustainability and prosperity. However, students from rural communities, arguably the future custodians of our environment and significant drivers of our economies, underperform in science education. In Australia, rural students generally lag behind metropolitan students in science achievement and engagement.…

Choudhary, Rahul; Foppoli, Alexander; Kaur, Tejinder; Blair, David; Burman, Ron; Zadnik, Marjan – Research in Science Education, 2022
The need to modernise school physics to encompass the fundamentals of Einsteinian physics is widely recognised. While the ability of students to comprehend qualitative Einsteinian concepts has been demonstrated, little information exists to determine the best student age and the duration of instruction required for introducing Einsteinian physics…

Kang, Jingoo – Research in Science Education, 2022
Recent international comparison studies such as the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) repeatedly argued that inquiry-based learning (IBL) indicated a negative effect on science literacy (SL). However, those studies included two limitations in revealing the relationship between IBL and SL as they did not consider (1)…

Ludwig, Tobias; Priemer, Burkhard; Lewalter, Doris – Research in Science Education, 2021
Justifications play a central role in argumentation, which is a core topic in school science education. This paper contributes to this field of research by presenting two studies in which we assess students' justifications for supporting or rejecting hypotheses in the physics lab based on self-collected, anomalous experimental data, which are…

Safadi, Rafi'; Saadi, Sheren – Research in Science Education, 2021
Self-diagnosis activities require students to self-diagnose their solutions to problems they solved on their own by detecting and explaining their errors. Worked examples, a step-by-step demonstration of how to solve a problem, are often used to support students in self-diagnosis activities. However, studies indicate that students often fail to…

Lie, Richard; Aranda, Maurina L.; Guzey, S. Selcen; Moore, Tamara J. – Research in Science Education, 2021
Recent reforms in science education have supported the inclusion of engineering and their practices in K-12 curricula. To this end, many classrooms have incorporated engineering units that include design challenges. Design is an integral part of engineering and can help students think in creative and interdisciplinary ways. In this study, we…
