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…

Tsai, Chun-Yen; Jack, Brady Michael – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study investigates how affective dispositions influencing students' moral judgments can both shape their response to individual enjoyment from learning ethics (IE-LE) and predict their individual enjoyment from learning socio-scientific issues (IE-LSSI). Tenth-grade participants from southern Taiwan (n = 770) responded to survey items that…

Gai, Lichun; Zheng, Changlong; Lederman, Norman G.; Lederman, Judith S.; Jiao, Huihong – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The purpose of this study is to examine the salient characteristics of the 'Question-Answer Process' (QAP) in senior high school chemistry class between pre- and in-service teachers. We first developed the 'Instrument of Question-Answer Process' (IQAP), and then, applied it to compare salient characteristics of QAP between pre- and in-service…

Rushton, Elizabeth A. C.; Reiss, Michael J. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
We explore the professional identities of UK-based secondary science teachers who actively participated in science research for at least six months. The study uses thematic analysis to analyse semi-structured interviews with 17 participants across England and Scotland, from a variety of educational/socio-economic contexts. We found that through…

Wang, Yan; Lavonen, Jari; Tirri, Kirsi – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This research compared how the scientific literacy-related goals of the current Chinese and Finnish national science curricula at primary school level are actualised using a revised Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) scientific literacy framework in the content analysis of the curricula. The content of the curricula focuses…

Karakolidis, Anastasios; Pitsia, Vasiliki; Emvalotis, Anastassios – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The importance of motivation-related factors in shaping students' academic achievement across a range of areas, including science, has been consistently acknowledged by the existing research literature. In an effort to improve students' science achievement, many education systems put particular emphasis on the enhancement of intrinsic (i.e.…

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…

Vojír, Karel; Rusek, Martin – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The number of science education research papers has been rapidly rising in recent years. This number has been particularly influenced by researchers from non-English speaking countries who contribute to the field. With this number of papers, literature reviews gain in importance as they help researchers more easily orient themselves in problem…

Le Hebel, Florence; Tiberghien, Andrée; Montpied, Pascale; Fontanieu, Valérie – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study focuses on the teachers' predictions of the students' performances -- in particular the middle-low achievers -- while solving tasks testing inquiry competencies. The tasks come from PISA science. More specifically we study science teachers' predictions for several aspects: levels of difficulty of the tasks, the potential sources of…

Vorholzer, Andreas; von Aufschnaiter, Claudia – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Inquiry-based instruction is an important teaching strategy in science education that can be implemented to achieve different learning goals (e.g. the learning of science content or of inquiry skills and strategies). Inquiry-based instruction is often combined with guidance attempting to assist students to effectively engage in inquiry activities…

Hong, Jon-Chao; Chang, Chun-Hsing; Tsai, Chi-Ruei; Tai, Kai-Hsin – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Interest in educational research can be categorised into situational interest (SI) and individual interest (II); the sequential phases of interest development for learning have long been recognised as triggered SI, maintained SI, emerging II, and well-developed II. This study proposes an interest development model which involves SI and II mentally…

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…

Bonnette, Rachel N.; Crowley, Kevin; Schunn, Christian D. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Ages 10-14 mark a period in which children develop a strong sense of whether science is 'for them,' a time that typically coincides with the start of middle school in the United States and their first exposure to more rigorous science classes and testing. Experiences with science in and out of school can shape children's motivation to choose…

Shaban, Yara; Wilkerson, Michelle Hoda – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Science educators demonstrated that students' framings -- their expectations of what is going on -- influence how they participate, and what science knowledge they reveal, in clinical interviews. This paper complements research that explores how interviewers are likely to affect student framings, by exploring how subtler interactions can lead…

Lykkegaard, Eva; Ulriksen, L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The metaphor of the leaking pipeline is sometimes used to suggest that some students are lost for STEM as they advance through the educational system. This paper follows a cohort of upper-secondary school students with an interest in STEM from 18 months before their completion of upper-secondary until three years after their completion. Adopting a…
