Hill, Michelle A.; Overton, Tina L.; Thompson, Christopher D.; Kitson, Russell R. A.; Coppo, Paolo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Employers of chemistry graduates are seeking a range of transferable skills from prospective employees, and academics are increasingly seeking to build employability skill development opportunities into the undergraduate curriculum. However, research suggests that undergraduates do not recognise or value such skill development without prompting.…

Chen, Ya-Chun; Wilson, Kimberley; Lin, Huann-shyang – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Systems thinking has been an educational priority for more than a decade, yet its related assessment and teaching strategies have been understudied in the chemistry education research community. Through the lens of systems thinking, this study explores how undergraduate students connect and translate their conceptual representations when they are…

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…

Yuriev, Elizabeth; Naidu, Som; Schembri, Luke S.; Short, Jennifer L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
To scaffold the development of problem-solving skills in chemistry, chemistry educators are exploring a variety of instructional techniques. In this study, we have designed, implemented, and evaluated a problem-solving workflow--''Goldilocks Help''. This workflow builds on work done in the field of problem solving in chemistry and provides…

Akkuzu, Nalan; Uyulgan, Melis Arzu – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
The current study examines the performance and achievement of students in the Systematic Qualitative Analyses of Cations (SQACs). We sought answers to questions such as, "What are the students' levels of performance?" and "What is the relation between the average scores for performance and achievement?." This was done by using…

Ouasri, Ali – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
This paper investigates the difficulties that Moroccan pupils (18-19) of the second Baccalaureate year encountered in solving chemical equilibrium problems relating to ethanoate ions' reactivity with water and methanoic acid, and to copper-aluminum cells. The pupils were asked to provide answers to questions derived from two problems. The…

Matijaševic, Igor; Korolija, Jasminka N.; Mandic, Ljuba M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
This paper describes the results achieved by high school seniors on an item which involves translation of the equation P = kT into a corresponding pictorial external representation. The majority of students (the classes of 2011, 2012 and 2013) did not give the correct answer to the multiple choice part of the translation item. They chose pictorial…

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…

Haglund, Jesper; Andersson, Staffan; Elmgren, Maja – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
Entropy is a central concept in thermodynamics, but has been found to be challenging to students due to its abstract nature and the fact that it is not part of students' everyday language. Interviews with three pairs of engineering students (N = 6) were conducted and video recorded regarding their interpretation and use of the entropy concept, one…

Yuriev, Elizabeth; Capuano, Ben; Short, Jennifer L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
Chemistry is a technical scientific discipline strongly underpinned by its own complex and diverse language. To be successful in the problem-solving aspects of chemistry, students must master the language of chemistry, and in particular, the definition of terms and concepts. To assist students in this challenging task, a variety of instructional…

Partanen, Lauri – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
The aim of this study was to apply current pedagogical research in order to develop an effective course and exercise structure for a physical chemistry thermodynamics course intended for second or third year university students of chemistry. A mixed-method approach was used to measure the impact the changes had on student learning. In its final…

Ültay, Neslihan; Durukan, Ümmü Gülsüm; Ültay, Eser – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
This study aimed to investigate the effect of conceptual change text (CCT) in the REACT strategy for students' conceptions of solutions. A quasi-experimental method was used in the study. The study was carried out in the spring term of the 2012-2013 academic year with 61 freshmen students (aged 18-20 years) studying in the Elementary Education…

Randles, C. A.; Overton, T. L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
This paper describes the results of a qualitative study using ground theory to investigate the different approaches used by chemists when answering open-ended problems. The study involved undergraduate, industrialist and academic participants who individually answered three open-ended problems using a think aloud protocol. Open-ended problems are…

González, Antonio; Paoloni, Paola-Verónica – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
Research in chemistry education has highlighted a number of variables that predict learning and performance, such as teacher-student interactions, academic motivation and metacognition. Most of this chemistry research has examined these variables by identifying dyadic relationships through bivariate correlations. The main purpose of this study was…

Herranen, Jaana Kristiina; Vesterinen, Veli-Matti; Aksela, Maija Katariina – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
The aim of this study was to create an instrument to measure elementary teachers' interest in teaching chemistry. The interest in chemistry teaching instrument (ICTI) was created to measure both the affective and cognitive components of interest. After establishing the face and content validity of the instrument, the internal consistency of the…
