Chan, Kennedy Kam Ho; Xu, Lihua; Cooper, Rebecca; Berry, Amanda; van Driel, Jan H. – Studies in Science Education, 2021
In recent years, teacher noticing has emerged as a construct to capture the dynamic and situational aspects of teaching expertise that underlies teachers' in-the-moment teaching decisions and actions. In mathematics education research, in particular, teacher noticing has been studied to understand how teachers attend to, and make sense of,…

Hull, Michael M.; Jansky, Alexandra; Hopf, Martin – Studies in Science Education, 2021
In this literature review, we survey student naïve ideas (frequently referred to as 'misconceptions') that plausibly relate, at least in part, to difficulty in understanding probability. We collected diverse naïve ideas from a range of topics in physics: Non-linear Dynamics; Cosmology; Thermal Physics; Atomic, Nuclear, and Particle Physics;…

Bruckermann, Till; Fiedler, Daniela; Harms, Ute – Studies in Science Education, 2021
Difficulties in understanding evolution are often rooted in early childhood, arising from naïve assumptions and cognitive biases. However, literature reviews mainly focus on school and university students' understanding of evolution, with only limited comprehensive reviews on children in early childhood aged up to 7 years. This systematic review…

Takeuchi, Miwa A.; Sengupta, Pratim; Shanahan, Marie-Claire; Adams, Jennifer D.; Hachem, Maryam – Studies in Science Education, 2020
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education garnered significant attention in recent years and has emerged as a key field of research globally. The goal of this article is to offer a critical review of how STEM education and its transdisciplinarity were defined and/or positioned in empirical studies published during the early…

Potvin, Patrice; Nenciovici, Lucian; Malenfant-Robichaud, Guillaume; Thibault, François; Sy, Ousmane; Mahhou, Mohamed Amine; Bernard, Alex; Allaire-Duquette, Geneviève; Blanchette Sarrasin, Jérémie; Brault Foisy, Lorie-Marlène; Brouillette, Nancy; St-Aubin, Audrey-Anne; Charland, Patrick; Masson, Steve; Riopel, Martin; Tsai, Chin-Chung; Bélanger, Michel; Chastenay, Pierre – Studies in Science Education, 2020
In this article, we propose an analysis of the state of, and trends in, the field of conceptual change research in science education through the lens of its models. Using a quantitative approach, we reviewed all conceptual change articles (n = 245) published in five major journals in the field of science education in search of the support that…

Chang, Hsin-Yi; Lin, Tzung-Jin; Lee, Min-Hsien; Lee, Silvia Wen-Yu; Lin, Tzu-Chiang; Tan, Aik-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Studies in Science Education, 2020
In this study, we reviewed 76 journal articles on employing drawing assessment as a research tool in science education. Findings from the systematic review suggest four justifications for using drawing as a type of research tool, including assessment via drawing as (a) an alternative method considering young participants' verbal or writing…

Simms, Wendy – Studies in Science Education, 2020
A theoretical review of the literature was conducted to understand how environmental identity is currently being interpreted and applied so the construct can be extended to the classroom context appropriately. The review found three key foundational philosophies contributing to the interpretation of environmental identity in the field of…

Holzberger, Doris; Reinhold, Sarah; Lüdtke, Oliver; Seidel, Tina – Studies in Science Education, 2020
In the present meta-analysis, we examine how secondary school characteristics -- such as schools' academic press, school climate, material resources, personnel resources, classroom climate, instructional practices, out-of-school activities, and socioeconomic status (SES) composition -- provide opportunities for students to engage in science and…

Zhai, Xiaoming; Yin, Yue; Pellegrino, James W.; Haudek, Kevin C.; Shi, Lehong – Studies in Science Education, 2020
Machine learning (ML) is an emergent computerised technology that relies on algorithms built by 'learning' from training data rather than 'instruction', which holds great potential to revolutionise science assessment. This study systematically reviewed 49 articles regarding ML-based science assessment through a triangle framework with technical,…
