Taasoobshirazi, Gita; Puckett, Christina; Marchand, Gwen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Stereotype threat theory (STT) presents a potential explanation for differences in achievement in math and science for women. Specifically, STT postulates that the perceived risk of confirming a negative stereotype about an individual's identity group acts as a psychological burden that negatively impacts performance. This study is the third in a…

Yerdelen, Sündüs; Sungur, Semra – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study aimed to investigate the role of students' classroom learning environment perceptions and teacher effectiveness in 7th grade students' self-regulation in science classes. Students' self-regulation was examined in terms of self-efficacy, achievement goals, and metacognitive strategy use which constitute important components of…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Harwell, Michael; Peralta, Yadira – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The emphasis of reform-oriented science education today focuses on engineering integration in K-12 science classrooms. However, there is little research, particularly longitudinal research, on how different approaches to engineering integration influence student learning and interest. To address this gap in the literature, this study analyzed a…

Lawrie, Gwendolyn A.; Schultz, Madeleine; Wright, Anthony H. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The successful transition from high school to tertiary chemistry studies relies on a student's ability to transfer prior understanding since many topics are extended during first year general chemistry. It was therefore of interest to investigate the perspectives of high school and tertiary teachers regarding which topics and concepts they…

Tas, Yasemin; Aksoy, Gökhan; Cengiz, Ekrem – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigates the effect of design-based science (DBS) instruction on students' learning of electrical energy and students' metacognitive strategy use in science. Two classes of seventh-grade students participated in the study. DBS instruction was used in the treatment group, while the comparison group was taught the unit with…

Adkins, Michael; Noyes, Andrew – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The mathematical preparedness of science undergraduates has been a subject of debate for some time. This paper investigates the relationship between school mathematics attainment and degree outcomes in biology and chemistry across England, a much larger scale of analysis than has hitherto been reported in the literature. A unique dataset which…

Wang, Tzu-Ling; Tseng, Yi-Kuan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relative effectiveness of experimenting with physical manipulatives alone, virtual manipulatives alone, and virtual preceding physical manipulatives (combination environment) on third-grade students' science achievement and conceptual understanding in the domain of state changes of water, focusing…

Hwang, Jihyun; Choi, Kyong Mi; Bae, Yejun; Shin, Dong Hoon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Many efforts have been made to reach educational equity, especially to reduce mathematics and science achievement gaps by students' socioeconomic status. Across countries, educators strive to reform traditional teacher-centered instructional approaches to more student-centered/inquiry-based instruction to improve equity in education. In this…

De Silva, Anthoni Durage Asoka; Khatibi, Ali; Ferdous Azam, S. M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The present study examined whether gender, ethnicity, instructional medium and school category differences manifest in science performance and motivation to learn science among secondary school students in Sri Lanka. The mean of five successive term test scores was used as the measure of science performance. Level of motivation in terms of six…

Yang, Yang; He, Peng; Liu, Xiufeng – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
So far, not enough effort has been invested in developing reliable, valid, and engaging assessments in school science, especially assessment of interdisciplinary science based on the new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Furthermore, previous tools rely mostly on multiple-choice items and evaluation of student outcome is linked only to…

Wang, Cheng-Lung; Liou, Pey-Yan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine the pattern of the relationships among motivational beliefs and science achievement of 8th grade Taiwanese students, given that the students in Taiwan have high science academic achievement but low motivational beliefs in science learning on a series of international large-scale assessments. Three…

Romance, Nancy; Vitale, Michael – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Reported are the results of a multiyear study in which reading comprehension and writing were integrated within an in-depth science instructional model (Science IDEAS) in daily 1.5 to 2 h daily lessons on a schoolwide basis in grades 3-4-5. Multilevel (HLM7) achievement findings showed the experimental intervention resulted in significant and…

Pamuk, Savas; Sungur, Semra; Oztekin, Ceren – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study adopted a cross-sectional and correlational research design in an attempt to add our understanding of student- and teacher-level factors that help explain variability in students' science achievement to the existing literature. More specifically, the present article examined students' science achievement in relation to their…

Emden, Markus; Sumfleth, Elke – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
In recent science education, experimentation features ever more strongly as a method of inquiry in science classes rather than as a means to illustrate phenomena. Ideas and materials to teach inquiry abound. Yet, tools for assessing students' achievement in their processes of experimentation are lacking. The present study assumes a basal,…

Simpson, Amber; Che, S. Megan; Bridges, William C., Jr. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Recently, single-sex classes within public coeducational schools have proliferated across the USA; yet, we still know little about whether and how single-sex science classes influence adolescents' attitude and affect toward science. This exploratory study expands upon our current understanding by investigating the extent in which female and male…
