Ronen, Ilana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study begins the task of mapping out two approaches that may be helpful in overcoming incorrect responses to conservation tasks, focusing on the non-conserved quantity. The incorrect responses, which were the result of over-generalizations of conservation, and gradually increased with age despite formal knowledge and minor perceptual input,…

Chang, Hsin-Yi; Tzeng, Shi-Fang – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
In this study, we have synthesized the research on visualization and representation to propose a model consisting of 4 major components of visualization competence in learning science: constructing, interpreting, transforming, and critiquing visualizations. We have developed and validated an assessment that measures students' visualization…

Gómezescobar, Ariadna; Fernández-Cézar, Raquel; Guerrero, Silvia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The present work shows how 4-6-year-old Spanish children interpret numbers and space intervals in the ruler when measuring length. To determine it, 4 ad hoc rulers are designed and used with a sample of 103 children from two schools of Toledo province (Spain). The sample is characterized respecting conservation and measurement with the standard…

Irish, Tobias; Kang, Nam-Hwa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This multiple case study examines how teachers request students' use of their content knowledge and conceptual understandings from out-of-school experiences while reasoning about science concepts and the ways in which students perceive and respond to these requests. Three middle school teachers and a total of 57 middle school students participated…

Cabello-Garrido, Aurelio; España-Ramos, Enrique; Blanco-López, Ángel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This paper describes the application of the methodology developed in research on learning progressions to a health-related topic. More specifically, we present a human nutrition learning progression as a hypothesis that now requires empirical validation. The study involved three phases. In the first phase, we analysed the existing literature in…

Cebesoy, Umran Betul; Oztekin, Ceren – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Teachers have a crucial role to play in raising future generations of citizens who are aware of issues in genetics literacy such as gene therapy, cloning, and stem cell research. Teachers' teaching practices are influenced by their knowledge in genetics literacy and their attitudes towards different issues. Accordingly, this study explored the…

Zhao, Xiaoyan; Van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Marja; Veldhuis, Michiel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study investigated Chinese primary school mathematics teachers' views on assessment in an effort to determine their assessment profiles. A large-scale questionnaire survey with 1101 teachers from 12 Chinese provinces and regions was carried out. The teachers reported to use assessment on a daily or weekly basis for different purposes. They…

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…

Olsson, Jan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study investigates how students' reasoning contributes to their utilization of computer-generated feedback. Sixteen 16-year-old students solved a linear function task designed to present a challenge to them using dynamic software, GeoGebra, for assistance. The data were analysed with respect both to character of reasoning and to the use of…

Holmes, Kathryn; Gore, Jennifer; Smith, Max; Lloyd, Adam – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Declining enrolments in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and a lack of interest in STEM careers are concerning at a time when society is becoming more reliant on complex technologies. We examine student aspirations for STEM careers by drawing on surveys conducted annually from 2012 to 2015. School students in…
