Apugliese, Andrew; Lewis, Scott E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Meta-analysis can provide a robust description of the impact of educational reforms and also offer an opportunity to explore the conditions where such reforms are more or less effective. This article describes a meta-analysis on the impact of cooperative learning on students' chemistry understanding. Modifiers in the meta-analysis are purposefully…

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…

Crujeiras-Pérez, B.; Jiménez-Aleixandre, M. P. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
This paper examines the process of high school students' planning investigations in the chemistry laboratory across two consecutive academic years in terms of their actions and their progress. The context is a set of five inquiry-based laboratory tasks in which participants (9th and 10th graders, 14-15 and 15-16 years of age) are required to plan…

Günter, Tugçe; Alpat, Sibel Kilinç – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
This study investigates the effects of problem-based learning (PBL) on students' academic achievements in studying "Electrochemistry" within a course on Analytical Chemistry. The research was of a pretest-posttest control group quasi-experimental design and it was conducted with second year students in the Chemistry Teaching Program at…

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'…

Gabby, Shwartz; Avargil, Shirly; Herscovitz, Orit; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
An ongoing process of reforming chemical education in middle and high schools in our country introduced the technology-enhanced learning environment (TELE) to chemistry classes. Teachers are encouraged to integrate technology into pedagogical practices in meaningful ways to promote 21st century skills; however, this effort is often hindered by…

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…

Gegios, Theodoros; Salta, Katerina; Koinis, Spyros – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
In this study we present an analysis of how the structure and content of the Greek school textbook approaches the concepts of chemical kinetics, and an investigation of the difficulties that 11th grade Greek students face regarding these concepts. Based on the structure and content of the Greek textbook, a tool was developed and applied to…

Nielsen, W.; Hoban G.; Hyland, C. J. T. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Students can now digitally construct their own representations of scientific concepts using a variety of modes including writing, diagrams, 2-D and 3-D models, images or speech, all of which communicate meaning. In this study, final-year chemistry students studying a pharmacology subject created a ''blended media'' digital product as an assignment…

Semmler, Luzie; Pietzner, Verena – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Creativity has become an increasingly important competence in today's rapidly changing times, especially for school graduates who strive for pursuing a technical or scientific career. But creativity has not been integrated in the lessons or curricula of STEM subjects. To successfully integrate it in the classroom, it is important to investigate…

Cigdemoglu, C.; Arslan, H. O.; Cam, A. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Argumentative practices have the potential to contribute to scientific literacy. However, these practices are not widely incorporated in science classrooms and so their effect on the domains of literacy is still not revealed. Therefore, this study proposes to reveal the effect of argumentation on the three domains of chemical literacy related to…

Seery, Michael K.; Agustian, Hendra Y.; Doidge, Euan D.; Kucharski, Maciej M.; O'Connor, Helen M.; Price, Amy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Laboratory work is at the core of any chemistry curriculum but literature on the assessment of laboratory skills is scant. In this study we report the use of a peer-observation protocol underpinned by exemplar videos. Students are required to watch exemplar videos for three techniques (titrations, distillations, preparation of standard solutions)…

Danczak, S. M.; Thompson, C. D.; Overton, T. L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Good critical thinking is important to the development of students and a valued skill in commercial markets and wider society. There has been much discussion regarding the definition of critical thinking and how it is best taught in higher education. This discussion has generally occurred between philosophers, cognitive psychologists and education…

Galloway, Kyle W. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Recent data suggests that of the UK students graduating with a degree in chemistry in 2015, only 18.9% continued to employment as "Science Professionals". While this shows the wide range of employment that is available for chemistry graduates, it also highlights the need for them to have relevant transferable skills, rather than just the…

Canelas, Dorian A.; Hill, Jennifer L.; Novicki, Andrea – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Science and engineering educators and employers agree that students should graduate from college with expertise in their major subject area as well as the skills and competencies necessary for productive participation in diverse work environments. These competencies include problem-solving, communication, leadership, and collaboration, among…
