Summers, Ryan; Wang, Shuai; Abd-El-Khalick, Fouad; Said, Ziad – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Surveying is a common methodology in science education research, including cross-national and cross-cultural comparisons. The literature surrounding students' attitudes toward science, in particular, illustrates the prevalence of efforts to translate instruments with the eventual goal of comparing groups. This paper utilizes survey data from a…
