Nielsen, Wendy; Georgiou, Helen; Jones, Pauline; Turney, Annette – Research in Science Education, 2020
Assessments in tertiary science subjects typically assess content knowledge, and there is current need to both develop and assess different forms of knowledge and skills, such as communications and digital literacies. A digital explanation is a multimodal artefact created by students to explain science to a specified audience, which is an…

Kulgemeyer, Christoph – Research in Science Education, 2020
Science explanation videos, especially online ones, have become popular. They cover nearly all topics from school science curricula. Teachers use them in a flipped classroom. Students watch them also in their leisure time. However, there is a lack of research on guidelines that effective science explanation videos should follow. The research on…

Ralls, Deborah; Bianchi, Lynne; Choudry, Sophina – Research in Science Education, 2020
This paper reports the findings from a cross-sector research project designed to question how the development of university-school partnerships can influence university academics' pedagogic practice in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Findings from this research are offered at time when, in parallel with countries around…

Scherb, Christian Alexander; Nitz, Sandra – Research in Science Education, 2020
Several studies have shown that "learner-generated external visual representations" (LGVRs) play a vital role for learning scientific concepts and processes. However, we know little about teachers' reasoning as to why and how to implement LGVR activities in their teaching. Thus, the purpose of our study is to determine why teachers let…

Ng, Wan; Fergusson, Jennifer – Research in Science Education, 2019
The issue of student disengagement in school science continues to pose a threat to lifting the participation rates of students undertaking STEM courses and careers in Australia and other countries globally. In Australia, several science initiatives to reverse the problem have been funded over the last two decades. Many of these initiatives involve…

Moote, Julie – Research in Science Education, 2019
This study investigates the impact of participation in the CREativity in Science and Technology (CREST) programme on student self-regulated processes and related motivations. The CREST scheme, a student-run science project managed by the British Science Association, is currently being implemented in schools across the UK to increase student…

Reilly, David; Neumann, David L.; Andrews, Glenda – Research in Science Education, 2019
The underrepresentation of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-related fields remains a concern for educators and the scientific community. Gender differences in mathematics and science achievement play a role, in conjunction with attitudes and self-efficacy beliefs. We report results from the 2011 Trends in…

Cairns, Dean; Areepattamannil, Shaljan – Research in Science Education, 2019
This study, drawing on data from the third cycle of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) and employing three-level hierarchical linear modeling (HLM) as an analytic strategy, examined the relations of inquiry-based science teaching to science achievement and dispositions toward science among 170,474 15-year-old students from…

Crujeiras-Pérez, Beatriz; Jiménez-Aleixandre, Maria Pilar – Research in Science Education, 2019
This paper examines students' engagement in monitoring anomalous results across a 2-year longitudinal study with 9th and 10th graders (14-15 and 15-16 years of age). The context is a set of five inquiry-based laboratory tasks, requiring students to plan and carry out investigations. The study seeks to examine students' interpretation of data, in…

Kumarassamy, Jayanthy; Koh, Caroline – Research in Science Education, 2019
Much has been written and debated on the importance of including moral, character or values education in school curricula. In line with this, teachers' views with regard to values education have often been sought. However, a search into the literature on values in science education has revealed little on this domain. In an attempt to close this…

Lee, Tammy D.; Gail Jones, M.; Chesnutt, Katherine – Research in Science Education, 2019
Complex systems affect every part of our lives from the ecosystems that we inhabit and share with other living organisms to the systems that supply our water (i.e., water cycle). Evaluating events, entities, problems, and systems from multiple perspectives is known as a "systems thinking" approach. New curriculum standards have made…

Lee, Hyunju; Yang, Jung-eun – Research in Science Education, 2019
This study presents two science teachers, Catherine and Jennifer, who took their first steps toward teaching socioscientific issues through collaborative action research. The teachers participated in the collaborative action research project because they wanted to address socioscientific issues but had limited experience in teaching them. The…

Moodley, Kimera; Gaigher, Estelle – Research in Science Education, 2019
An exploratory case study involving six grade 9 science teachers was undertaken to probe how teachers' understanding of learners' misconceptions relate to their perceptions about teaching simple circuits. The participants' understanding of documented misconceptions in electricity were explored by means of a questionnaire, while their perceptions…

Olivares-Donoso, Ruby; González, Carlos – Research in Science Education, 2019
Over the last 25 years, both research literature and practice-oriented reports have claimed the need for improving the quality of undergraduate science education through linking research and teaching. Two manners of doing this are reported: undergraduate research and research-based courses. Although there are studies reporting benefits of…

Herman, Benjamin C .; Olson, Joanne K.; Clough, Michael P. – Research in Science Education, 2019
This study reports the participation of 13 secondary science teachers in informal support networks and how that participation was associated with their nature of science (NOS) teaching practices 2 to 5 years after having graduated from the same science teacher education program. The nine teachers who participated in informal support networks…
