Alred, Ashley R.; Doherty, Jennifer H.; Hartley, Laurel M.; Harris, Cornelia B.; Dauer, Jenny M. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
An understanding of biological variation is important for understanding ecological interactions, ecosystem function, and species' response to environmental change. Biological variation is essential to species survival because natural selection acts upon the phenotypic variation within a population: the more varied the population's genetic…

Dare, Emily A.; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Roehrig, Gillian H. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
As more and more science teachers in the United States are now expected to implement STEM education in their classrooms, it is important to understand how teachers conceptualise STEM education. This information can then be used to provide teachers with meaningful support as they move towards implementation of STEM education. Understanding that not…

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…

Gonzales, Alicia C.; Purington, Stephanie; Robinson, Julie; Nieswandt, Martina – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Research shows that collaborative work promotes student learning and improves social skills, but teachers are still exploring how to best support problem-solving in a small group context, particularly in the science classroom. This study builds on prior research to characterise teacher interactions with small groups in secondary science and…

Wong, Victoria – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Science is a much-revised and contested area of the curriculum. A new curriculum has recently been introduced in England which includes far more mathematical aspects of science than previous versions. This study asks what the influences, ideologies and values are which led to this change. A two-phase qualitative approach was followed comprising…

Rojas Rojas, Sandra Patricia; Meneses, Alejandra; Sánchez Miguel, Emilio – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Reading is a tool that promotes the learning of science across schooling. Scientific texts are conceptually and linguistically complex, especially for students from low-income contexts because they have neither the experience with the language nor the literacy skills to face the challenges of scientific knowledge. This study used a mix method…

Sandoval, William A.; Enyedy, Noel; Redman, Elizabeth H.; Xiao, Sihan – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Most of the research on argumentation in science education has documented the myriad flaws in students' argumentation, and the difficulties teachers have organising productive arguments in the classroom. We apply a sociocultural framework to argue that productive argumentation emerges from a classroom culture in which its practice meaningfully…

Tzu-Ling, Hsieh – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The purpose of this study was to answer the following two questions: (1) Do significant differences exist in high-school learning experience, interests, self-efficacy, and career aspirations between male and female science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students? (2) Can high-school learning experiences, interests, and…

King, Gretchen P.; Bergan-Roller, Heather; Galt, Nicholas; Helikar, Tomáš; Dauer, Joseph T. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Model-based instruction offers numerous benefits to students, including increased content knowledge and critical thinking. This study explored the differences in the knowledge outcomes and reasoning processes employed by undergraduate students in an introductory biology lab as they constructed, revised, and simulated a computational model of a…

Ring, Malte; Brahm, Taiga; Randler, Christoph – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In science, graphs are used to visualise data, relationships and scientific principles. Basic graph reading operations, i.e. reading single data points, recognising trends as well as conducting small extrapolations from the data are important skills for pupils and lay the groundwork for a comprehensive understanding of data visualisations across…

Ropohl, Mathias; Rönnebeck, Silke – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Feedback is an essential formative assessment practice that has the potential to influence student learning and achievement positively. Providing effective feedback, however, is a challenging task for teachers. Especially beginning teachers struggle with the provision of information that supports students in developing and improving their…

Karlsson, Annika; Nygård Larsson, Pia; Jakobsson, Anders – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study describes multilingual students' authentic use of their first and second languages in a "translanguaging science classroom," from a sociocultural perspective. The study is ethnographic, and has followed some lessons each month in a translanguaging science classroom at a primary school for three years. The observed lessons were…

Cisterna, Dante; Forbes, Cory T.; Roy, Ranu – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Research suggests that it is challenging for elementary students to develop conceptual understanding of trait variation, inheritance of traits, and life cycles. In this study, we report on an effort to promote elementary students' learning of hereditary-related concepts through scientific modelling, which affords opportunities for elementary…

Du, Xin; Wong, Billy – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The concept of science capital has a growing influence in science education research for understanding young people's science trajectories. Popularised in the UK, this paper aims to extend and evaluate the applicability of science capital in the context of China by drawing on PISA2015. More specifically, we make use of existing items in the…

Sgouros, Giannis; Stavrou, Dimitris – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This case study focuses on teachers' professional development in NanoScience and nanoTechnology (NST). In the context of a Community of Learners (CoL), in-service teachers in collaboration with science education researchers, nanoscience researchers and experts from science museums, developed a teaching module. This module integrates NST topics…
