Kang, Jingoo; Hense, Jonathan; Scheersoi, Annette; Keinonen, Tuula – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Gender disparities in STEM fields have been under extensive study, the focus of which has been on future career aspirations. However, the primary phases in gender differences are still ambiguous when examined from this perspective, possibly due to the fact that most of the studies have targeted samples of upper secondary school or college…

Bartels, Hauke; Geelan, David; Kulgemeyer, Christoph – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Measuring teachers' skills to carry out the complex tasks required in teaching is an important means of evaluating the effectiveness of teacher education but remains a challenging activity to conduct in practice. It is necessary to optimise approaches for usability and effectiveness along a continuum from low-effort and low-authenticity measures…

Sorge, Stefan; Kröger, Jochen; Petersen, Stefan; Neumann, Knut – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Teachers' professional knowledge is considered one of the most important predictors of instructional quality. According to Shulman, such professional knowledge includes content, pedagogical content and pedagogical knowledge. Although recent research shed some light on the structure of the dimensions of professional knowledge, little is known how…

Liepertz, Sven; Borowski, Andreas – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The structure and definition of professional knowledge is a continuing focus of science education research. In 2012, a pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) summit was held and it suggested a model of professional knowledge and skill including PCK, which was later often called the Consensus Model (Gess-Newsome, 2015. A model of teacher professional…

Wei, Bing; Chen, Nan – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In this study, a sociocultural perspective was adopted to understand the interplay between identity and agency in a context of science education reform in China. The manifestation of agency and the interaction between identity and agency were examined with two beginning science teachers teaching with practical work in high school. As part of this…

Odden, Tor Ole B.; Russ, Rosemary S. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Current science education reforms highlight the importance of students making sense of scientific ideas. While research has studied how to support sensemaking in classrooms, we still know very little about what drives students to pursue and persist in it on their own. In this article, we use a set of parallel case studies of undergraduate students…

Özmen, Kübra; Özdemir, Ömer Faruk – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study was designed to develop an assessment tool to measure high school students' personal epistemology (PE) in the physics domain by using validation processes. Based on theoretical foundations of PE, the PPEQ was conceptualised on six hypothetical dimensions: structure of knowledge [SK], justification of knowledge and knowing [JK],…

Girwidz, Raimund; Thoms, Lars-Jochen; Pol, Henk; López, Víctor; Michelini, Marisa; Stefanel, Alberto; Greczylo, Tomasz; Müller, Andreas; Gregorcic, Bor; Hömöstrei, Mihály – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Teacher-oriented journals provide many ideas for practical use of multimedia in physics teaching and learning. However, they are often written in their respective native languages. Moreover, having 24 official languages in the European Union is a huge barrier to the exchange of teaching and learning material. Knowledge about what is discussed in…

Malkiewich, Laura J.; Chase, Catherine C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Transfer is an important outcome of science and engineering education, but little work has explored factors that facilitate transfer of science concepts from engineering tasks. The transfer literature suggests that noticing deep structure is critical for transfer, but students often fail to do so in engineering tasks. This case study investigates…

Balta, Nuri; Asikainen, Mervi A. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The aim of this study was to characterise thoroughly the differences between Physics Olympiad competitors' and regular students' successes and approaches in relation to counterintuitive dynamics problems (CDPs) in order to discover some of the differences between skilled problem-solvers and those with fewer such skills. A total of 23 Physics…

Ardura, Diego; Galán, Arturo – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The aim of the present investigation was to analyse the role of academic self-efficacy and approaches to learning in general and in Physics and Chemistry academic achievements. The sample comprised 507 secondary school students of two Spanish schools and the study was conducted in the context of a Physics and Chemistry subject. Structural equation…

Tang, Kok-Sing; Won, Mihye; Treagust, David – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This article presents the development, description, application, and discussion of an analytical framework to examine students' drawings of scientific concepts and processes. Student-generated representation, particularly drawing, is increasingly emphasised as an important learning strategy to help students reason, explain, and demonstrate their…

Nie, Ying; Xiao, Yang; Fritchman, Joseph C.; Liu, Qiaoyi; Han, Jing; Xiong, Jianwen; Bao, Lei – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Knowledge integration is essential to achieve deep conceptual understanding, which requires students to develop well-connected knowledge structures through the central idea of a concept. To effectively represent and analyze knowledge integration, a conceptual framework model on force and motion is developed to map learners' knowledge structures in…

Fridberg, Marie; Jonsson, Agneta; Redfors, Andreas; Thulin, Susanne – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper describes analysis of teaching instances that are part of an in-service preschool teachers programme about chemistry and physics in preschool. The aim is to develop knowledge about the communication established between teacher and children in relation to an object of learning, specifically the role of intersubjective communication in…

Craig, Cheryl J.; Verma, Rakesh; Stokes, Donna; Evans, Paige; Abrol, Bobby – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
This research examines the influence of parents on students' studying the STEM disciplines and entering STEM careers. Cases of two graduate students (one female, one male) and one undergraduate student (male) are featured. The first two students in the convenience sample are biology and physics majors in a STEM teacher education programme; the…
