Hrin, Tamara; Milenkovic, Dušica; Segedinac, Mirjana – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The importance of well elaborated cognitive structures in a science knowledge domain has been noted in many studies. Therefore, the main aim of this particular study was to employ a new diagrammatic assessment approach, students' generated systemic synthesis questions (SSynQs), to evaluate and compare the quality of high school students' and…

Segedinac, M. T.; Horvat, S.; Rodic, D. D.; Roncevic, T. N.; Savic, G. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
This paper proposes a novel application of knowledge space theory for identifying discrepancies between the knowledge structure that experts expect students to have and the real knowledge structure that students demonstrate on tests. The proposed approach combines two methods of constructing knowledge spaces. The expected knowledge space is…

Kostic, V. Dj.; Jovanovic, V. P. Stankov; Sekulic, T. M.; Takaci, Dj. B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
Problem solving in the field of quantitative composition of solutions (QCS), expressed as mass share and molar concentration, is essential for chemistry students. Since successful chemistry education is based on different mathematical contents, it is important to be proficient in both mathematical and chemistry concepts as well as interconnections…
