Schmidt-McCormack, Jennifer A.; Judge, Jessyca A.; Spahr, Kellie; Yang, Ellen; Pugh, Raymond; Karlin, Ashley; Sattar, Atia; Thompson, Barry C.; Gere, Anne Ruggles; Shultz, Ginger V. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Acid-base chemistry is a foundational topic that is taught in courses across the chemistry curriculum. Students often have difficulty distinguishing between the different theories of acid-base chemistry--Brønsted-Lowry and Lewis acid-base chemistry--and applying these two definitions correctly in unfamiliar scenarios. To help students learn these…

Moon, Alena; Moeller, Robert; Gere, Anne Ruggles; Shultz, Ginger V. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Science educators recognize the need to teach scientific ways of knowing and reasoning in addition to scientific knowledge. However, characterizing and assessing scientific ways of knowing and reasoning is challenging. Writing-to-learn offers one way of eliciting and supporting students' reasoning; further, writing serves to externalize and make…

Ferreira, João Elias Vidueira; Lawrie, Gwendolyn Angela – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Teachers select multiple representations and adopt multiple visualization approaches in supporting their students to make meaning of chemical phenomena. Representational competence underpins students' construction of their mental models of concepts thus it is important that teachers consider this while developing instructional resources. In…

George-Williams, Stephen R.; Ziebell, Angela L.; Kitson, Russell R. A.; Coppo, Paolo; Thompson, Christopher D.; Overton, Tina L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The aims of teaching laboratories is an important and ever-evolving topic of discussion amongst teaching staff at teaching institutions. It is often assumed that both teaching staff and students are implicitly aware of these aims, although this is rarely tested or measured. This assumption can lead to mismatched beliefs between students and…

Pratt, Justin M.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Conducting qualitative research in any discipline warrants two actions: accessing participants and eliciting their ideas. In chemistry education research (CER), survey techniques have been used to increase access to participants and diversify samples. Interview tasks (such as card sorting, using demonstrations, and using simulations) have been…

Stavrou, Dimitris; Michailidi, Emily; Sgouros, Giannis – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Introducing Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NST) topics into school science curricula is considered useful for an in-depth understanding of the content, processes and nature of science and technology, and also for negotiating the social aspects of science. This study examines (a) the development of an inquiry-based Teaching-Learning Sequence (TLS)…

Chase, A. M.; Clancy, H. A.; Lachance, R. P.; Mathison, B. M.; Chiu, M. M.; Weaver, G. C. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) can introduce many students to authentic research activities in a cost-effective manner. Past studies have shown that students who participated in CUREs report greater interest in chemistry, better data collection and analysis skills, and enhanced scientific reasoning compared to traditional…

Deng, Yang; Wang, Houxiong – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Attending to practice has become a significant topic in science education today. As scientific argumentation is a typical form of scientific practice as well as an important educational practice, more and more attention has been paid to it by science education researchers. Evaluating students' competence in scientific argumentation is one of the…

Undersander, Molly A.; Lund, Travis J.; Langdon, Laurie S.; Stains, Marilyne – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
The design of assessment tools is critical to accurately evaluate students' understanding of chemistry. Although extensive research has been conducted on various aspects of assessment tool design, few studies in chemistry have focused on the impact of the order in which questions are presented to students on the measurement of students'…

Liu, Yujuan; Ferrell, Brent; Barbera, Jack; Lewis, Jennifer E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Fundamentally concerned with motivation, self-determination theory (SDT) represents a framework of several mini-theories to explore how social context interacts with people's motivational types categorized by degree of regulation internalization. This paper aims to modify an existing theory-based instrument (Academic Motivation Scale, or AMS) and…

Milanovic, Vesna D.; Trivic, Dragica D. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
The aim of this research was to explore the effects of two approaches, designated as the historical and the contemporary one, on the level of students' understanding of the properties and the practical use of gases. Our research hypothesis was that the historical context of the discovery of gases and the study of their properties would deepen…
