Austin, Ara C.; Hammond, Nicholas B.; Barrows, Nathan; Gould, Deena L.; Gould, Ian R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
A central tenet of self-regulated learning theories is that students are motivated towards learning in order to self-regulate. It is thus important to identify student motivations in order to inform efforts to improve instructional strategies that encourage self-regulation. Here we describe a study aimed at characterizing the important motivation…

Dohrn, Sofie Weiss; Dohn, Niels Bonderup – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate how a chemistry teacher's questions influence the classroom discourse. It presents a fine-grained analysis of the rich variety of one teacher's questions and the roles they play in an upper secondary chemistry classroom. The study identifies six different functions for the teacher's questions:…

Chi, Shaohui; Wang, Zuhao; Luo, Ma; Yang, Yuqin; Huang, Min – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Chemical symbol representation is used extensively in chemistry classrooms; however, due to its abstract nature, many students struggle with learning and effectively utilizing these symbolic representations, which can lead to ongoing failure in subsequent chemistry learning. Taking the perspective of learning progressions, this study identifies…

Smith, K. Christopher; Sepulveda, Adrian – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
In this study 635 general chemistry I and general chemistry II students completed a 40-item Likert-scale survey on their opinions of various practices, including some academically dishonest practices, that might occur in the general chemistry laboratory. The practices surveyed were focused on areas including preparation before coming to the…

do Amaral, Edenia Maria Ribeiro; da Silva, João Roberto Ratis Tenório; Sabino, Jaqueline Dantas – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
In this paper, we analyze the process of conceptualization experienced by students in Secondary School when involved in activities in a teaching and learning sequence on the concept of substance, considering the emergence of zones of the conceptual profile. The results point out that the approaches to different modes of thinking of substance…

Srinivasan, Shalini; Gibbons, Rebecca E.; Murphy, Kristen L.; Raker, Jeffrey – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The aim of this study is to offer a current snapshot of flipped classroom use in postsecondary chemistry education. Data from a national survey of chemistry faculty members in the United States formed the basis of an investigation into the instructional contexts in which flipped classroom pedagogies are employed in postsecondary chemistry…

Ross, James; Nunez, Leslie; Lai, Chinh Chu – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Students' decisions to enter or persist in STEM courses is linked with their affective domain. The influence of factors impacting students' affective domain in introductory college chemistry classes, such as attitude, is often overlooked by instructors, who instead focus on students' mathematical abilities as sole predictors of academic…

Wei, Jianye; Mocerino, Mauro; Treagust, David F.; Lucey, Anthony D.; Zadnik, Marjan G.; Lindsay, Euan D.; Carter, Damien J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Laboratories play a crucial role in the undergraduate science curriculum and the effectiveness of learning in laboratories is influenced by learners' interactions with other students, the instructors, and the equipment used. In this study, a pre-lab survey was used to collect information about students' expectations of interactions in chemistry…

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)…

Hamnett, Hilary J.; McKie, Amanda E.; Morrison, Calum – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The ability to work in a group is an important skill for graduates. Although the experiences of undergraduate students with group work have been extensively explored, there is much less information in the literature regarding postgraduate students and no information on those enrolled in science programmes. In this study, participants from a taught…

Tsaparlis, Georgios; Pappa, Eleni T.; Byers, Bill – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Chemical bonding is a fundamental but complex topic, which has traditionally been associated with learning difficulties, misunderstandings, and misconceptions. This paper reviews some previous studies, concerning students' conceptual difficulties and reports the findings from a research study with Greek students, which set out to examine their…

Scanlon, Erin; Legron-Rodriguez, Tamra; Schreffler, Jillian; Ibadlit, Elijah; Vasquez, Eleazar; Chini, Jacquelyn J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Federal legislation requires equitable access to education for all students at all levels, including in the postsecondary setting. While there have been a few studies in the chemistry education research literature base focused on how to support students with specific disabilities, this work seems to exist as a separate stream of research without…

Sevian, Hannah; Couture, Steven – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Problem solving is lauded as beneficial, but students do not all learn well by solving problems. Using the resources framework, Tuminaro J., and Redish E. F., (2007), Elements of a cognitive model of physics problem solving: Epistemic games, "Physical Review Special Topics-Physics Education Research," 3(2), 020101 suggested that, for…
