Odell, Michael R. L.; Kennedy, Teresa J.; Stocks, Eric – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Project/problem-based learning (PBL) can provide an effective model for school reform when implemented with fidelity. In the report, "Rising Above the Gathering Storm," it was recommended that if the U.S. is to remain competitive in the 21st-century economy, there must be a serious effort to "enlarge the pipeline of students who are…

Svihla, Vanessa; Kubik, Tim; Stevens-Shauger, Tori – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
While performance assessment (PA) is well aligned to project-based learning (PjBL), teachers find it challenging to design and implement PA that is faithful to the authentic context of their projects and viewed externally as rigorous. In contrast to standardizing PA tasks--thereby diminishing authenticity--we formed a research-practice partnership…

Culclasure, Brooke T.; Longest, Kyle C.; Terry, Troy M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Project-based learning (PjBL) as a PK-12 instructional model is growing nationwide. PjBL is seen as a mechanism to deliver academic content in a more engaging way for students and in a way that stresses the development of skills critical to success in the 21st-century workforce. Because of its increasing popularity and the disparate breadth of…

Virtue, Emily E.; Hinnant-Crawford, Brandi N. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Supporters of project-based learning (PBL) argue that outcomes from the model include better performance in academic (Bell, 2010; Thomas, 2000) and non-academic outcomes (Saunders-Steward, Gyles, & Shore, 2010). The New Tech Network (NTN) is a school improvement network that provides training and development for high school faculty who commit…

Merritt, Joi; Lee, Mi Yeon; Rillero, Peter; Kinach, Barbara M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
This systematic literature review was conducted to explore the effectiveness of problem-based and project-based learning (PBL) implemented with students in early elementary to grade 8 (ages 3-14) in mathematics and science classrooms. Nine studies met the following inclusion criteria: (a) focus on PBL, (b) experimental study, (c) kindergarten to…

Dole, Sharon; Bloom, Lisa; Doss, Kristy K. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
This study used structured online interviews with teachers to examine the impact that inquiry-based teaching methods had on their students. The research question was the following: What are the effects on student learning and motivation as a result of teachers using problem-based and project-based learning? Interviews were conducted with 36…

Brassler, Mirjam; Dettmers, Jan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Interdisciplinary competence is important in academia for both employability and sustainable development. However, to date, there are no specific interdisciplinary education models and, naturally, no empirical studies to assess them. Since problem-based learning (PBL) and project-based learning (PjBL) are learning approaches that emphasize…

Hendry, Adam; Hays, Gavin; Challinor, Kurt; Lynch, Daniel – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the introduction, implementation, evolution, hybridization, and initial research into the constructivist instructional models deployed within a secondary (high) school in Australia. A concomitant aim is to relate some of the consequences of whole school pedagogical change, which have included the…

Smith, Shaunna – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
This ethnographic case study investigated how the process of learning during a yearlong after-school, project-based learning (PjBL) experience could be documented by student-created reflective videos. Guided by social constructivism, constant comparative analysis was used to explore the meaningful learning that took place in addition to the…

Edmunds, Julie; Arshavsky, Nina; Glennie, Elizabeth; Charles, Karen; Rice, Olivia – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
Project-based learning (PjBL) is an approach often favored in STEM classrooms, yet some studies have shown that teachers struggle to implement it with academic rigor. This paper explores the relationship between PjBL and rigor in the classrooms of ten STEM-oriented high schools. Utilizing three different data sources reflecting three different…

Creghan, Casey; Adair-Creghan, Kathleen – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
Students who do not regularly attend high school are at an increased risk of failure in the classroom and may eventually contribute to a higher dropout rate. More specifically, the attendance rates of students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds have traditionally been lower than those with average means. Therefore, the purpose of this…
