Grooms, Jonathon – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
This study focuses on how the quality of students' arguments and their conceptions of data and evidence change as a result of experiencing two types of laboratory courses, one employing a scripted inquiry approach and the other employing argument-driven inquiry. The analysis explores the connections between students' conceptions of data and…

Felstead, Alan; Jewson, Nick – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2014
This article outlines a conceptual framework for mapping and understanding training trends. It uses the metonyms of floors and ceilings to distinguish between different types of training configurations. The argument is made that the ups and downs of employer reports of training activity are a crude basis on which to make judgements about the…

Moon, A.; Stanford, C.; Cole, R.; Towns, M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
Recent science education reform efforts have emphasized scientific practices in addition to scientific knowledge. Less work has been done at the tertiary level to consider students' engagement in scientific practices. In this work, we consider physical chemistry students' engagement in argumentation and construction of causal explanations.…

King, Shande; Campbell, Tye – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2019
The development of proofs and argumentation is one of the major standards for mathematical practices in K-12 education that researchers and practitioners alike are continuing to improve. Further, the use of discourse is considered essential in the learning of mathematical concepts at these levels. However, K-12 educators continue to confound how…

Pellegrino, James W.; DiBello, Louis V.; Goldman, Susan R. – Educational Psychologist, 2016
Assessments that function close to classroom teaching and learning can play a powerful role in fostering academic achievement. Unfortunately, however, relatively little attention has been given to discussion of the design and validation of such assessments. The present article presents a framework for conceptualizing and organizing the multiple…

Tossavainen, Timo; Haukkanen, Pentti; Pesonen, Martti – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
In this paper, we investigate which aspects are overriding in the concept images of monotonicity of Finnish tertiary mathematics students, i.e., on which aspects of monotonicity they base their argument in different types of exercises related to that concept. Further, we examine the relationship between the quality of principal aspects and the…
