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…

Ayalon, Michal; Watson, Anne; Lerman, Steve – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Identifying and expressing relations between quantities is a key aspect of understanding and using functions. We are aiming to understand the development of functions understanding throughout school years in Israel. A survey instrument was developed with teachers and given to 20 high and average achieving students from each of years 7-11 and to 10…

Nantawanit, Nantawan; Panijpan, Bhinyo; Ruenwongsa, Pintip – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Most students think animals are more interesting than plants as a study topic believing that plants are inferior to animals because they are passive and unable to respond to external challenges, particularly biological invaders such as microorganisms and insect herbivores. The purpose of this study was to develop an inquiry-based learning unit,…
