Inquiry-based instruction has become a hallmark of science education and increasingly of integrated content areas, including science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Because inquiry-based instruction very clearly contains...
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 23, No. 2 (2004) pp. 151–167
Theory suggests that studying worked examples and engaging in self-explanation will improve learning and problem solving. A growing body of evidence supports the use of web-based assessments for improving undergraduate performance in traditional...
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 21, No. 2 (2002) pp. 183–201
Since 1997, the World Wide Web (WWW or Web) has been used to enhance the performance of students on the Advanced Placement (AP) exam by providing a web site dedicated to the descriptive portion of the exam. This web site provides repeatable testing...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 9, No. 3 (2000) pp. 207–11
Indicates the importance of journaling for student teachers to reflect upon the nature of the teaching experience and the increasing of student and supervising teacher communication by e-mail. Describes flexible strategies using a personal digital...
The impact of web-based worked examples and self-explanation on performance, problem solving, and self-efficacy
Computers & Education Vol. 49, No. 3 (November 2007) pp. 809–821
Studying worked examples and engaging in self-explanation are well-supported strategies for developing self-regulated learning and improving student performance. Our efforts involve a design theory approach to creating a Web-based learning tool that ...

The purpose of this study is to share the development of a new analytical tool, the Paleontological Identity Taxonomy (PIT), for characterizing members of a science community of practice that is sensitive to and descriptive of individual differences,...
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 33, No. 1 (January 2014) pp. 49–72
This paper describes a design study of a cyberlearning instructional unit about climate change created with a new inquiry-based design framework, the 5-featured Dynamic Inquiry Enterprise (5-DIE). The 5-DIE framework was created to address the need...
International Journal on E-Learning Vol. 3, No. 2 (2004) pp. 28–31
Much has been written about modified traditional techniques for an online environment. However, little research has been reported concerning the development of unique assessment strategies for online students; especially with regards to the role of...
Research in Science Education Vol. 43, No. 3 (June 2013) pp. 1029–1050
Teaching science to secondary students in an online environment is a growing international trend. Despite this trend, reports of empirical studies of this phenomenon are noticeably missing. With a survey concerning the nature of laboratory...
Seeking Shared Practice: A Juxtaposition of the Attributes and Activities of Organized Fossil Groups with Those of Professional Paleontology
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 25, No. 5 (2016) pp. 731–746
This study sought to define the attributes and practices of organized fossil groups (e.g., clubs, paleontological societies) as amateur paleontologists, as well as those of professional paleontologists, and explore the potential for these two groups ...
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 20, No. 4 (October 2009) pp. 385–403
