Vrikki, Maria; Kershner, Ruth; Calcagni, Elisa; Hennessy, Sara; Lee, Lisa; Hernández, Flora; Estrada, Nube; Ahmed, Farah – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
In this paper we examine two systematic observation methods intended to be used by pre-service and in-service teachers to help increase their awareness of children's participation in productive classroom dialogue. We identify the affordances of these methods for supporting teachers' reflective practice, focusing in this case on students' equitable…

Cho, Seonhee; Yi, Youngjoo – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Despite a growing number of Second Language (L2) researchers working in cross-cultural and cross-linguistic settings, issues related to these uniquely situated researcher identities have only scantily been addressed. In order to close this gap, we investigated three U.S.-based Korean female researchers in L2 studies. We sought to understand (1)…

Glackin, Melissa; Hohenstein, Jill – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Teacher self-efficacy has predominantly been explored using quantitative instruments such as Likert scales-based questionnaires. Several researchers have questioned these methods, suggesting they offer only a limited view of the concept. This paper considers their claim by exploring the self-efficacy of UK secondary science teachers participating…

Kaspersen, Eivind; Pepin, Birgit; Sikko, Svein Arne – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Several attempts have been made to measure and categorize beliefs and practices of mathematics teachers [Swan, M. 2006. "Designing and Using Research Instruments to Describe the Beliefs and Practices of Mathematics Teachers." "Research in Education" 75 (1): 58-70]. One of the reasons for measuring both beliefs and practices is…

Kennedy, JohnPaul; Quinn, Frances; Taylor, Neil – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
There have been many attempts over the last five decades to measure students' attitudes towards school science. Many of these studies investigated attitudes towards limited aspects of science and utilized large numbers of items to draw snapshot summaries of the educational landscape. An understanding of attitudes towards science, and how these…
