Article
In recent years, the reproducibility crisis has become a problem in many disciplines, including education, in which the results of past research have not been reproduced. This crisis is caused by questionable research practices (QRPs). The purpose of this study is to clarify the existence of QRPs in the field of science education in Japan and to pr...

Transfer of learning is the application of acquired knowledge, skills, and solutions to new contexts. Although many studies on learning transfer have been conducted, there are few studies on the transfer of learning from the perspective of science education in Japan, and new research in this area needs to be accumulated. In this paper, we reviewed...

This study aimed to examine the trends in grants for STEM / STEAM education in Japan as well as Japanese students’ perception of science learning and future careers. The grants were addressed through analysis of chronological trends, while student perceptions were reviewed through student questionnaires on Trends in International Mathematics and Sc...

This paper examines the advantages and disadvantages of Lesson Study among junior high school science teachers in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima, Japan. Using the descriptive-survey research design to the two groups (young teachers and veteran teachers) of all the junior high school science teachers in Fukuyama City, assessment on the successes and chall...

The purpose of this study is to clarify factors that affect variable control ability in science education. From the results of quantitative and qualitative analyses, “scientific thinking” and “meta-cognition by teacher involvement” were clarified as variables which directly affect the students’ variable control ability. The results also revealed th...
Article
The purpose of this research was to gather and organize research on hypothesis setting, and to comprehensively consider research trends and issues with attention to differences between domestic and overseas science education. Research on hypothesis setting was classified into 4 types: “definition of hypothesis”, “evaluation of actual situation”, “t...

In 1998 Japanese astronomy classes were shifted from grade 7 to grade 9, as advanced spatial cognition is required to understand astronomy. Consequently, students didn't learn astronomy from grade 5 to grade 8 because of this change. Agata (2004) reported elementary school students had low recognition of astronomical events. However, detailed data...

Article
The importance of making learners themselves formulate hypotheses as an entrance to problem solving and inquiry in science has been pointed out. On the other hand, in the previous research on hypothesis formulating, the actual state of the thinking process of formulating the explanatory hypothesis has not been clarified. Therefore, in this research...

In 1998 Japanese astronomy classes were shifted from grade 7 to grade 9, as advanced spatial cognition is required to understand astronomy. Consequently, students didn't learn astronomy from grade 5 to grade 8 because of this change. Agata [1] reported in 2004 that elementary school students had low recognition of astronomical events. However, deta...
Article
The purpose of this study is to clarify students’ understanding of scientific models. A 20-item pencil-and-paper questionnaire consisting of four constructs was conducted on 227 lower secondary school students and 200 science course college students. The results of this analysis revealed that lower secondary school students indicate lower scores th...
Chapter
This study explored the latent class of the structure of Japanese students’ interest in science and scientific literacy based on the result of PISA2006. As the result of this analysis suggested, Japanese students could be divided into two latent classes that differed in terms of the direct effect of instrumental motivation to learn science (F6) on...
Article
In 1998 astronomy classes were shifted from grade 7 to grade 9, as advanced spatial cognition is required to understand astronomy. Consequently, students don't learn astronomy from grade 5 to grade 8 because of this change. However, detailed data was insufficient to consider this impact on the spatial cognition of students. In this paper, we invest...
Article
The purpose of this study is to develop the teaching method for concept acquisition of the simple pendulum based on the children's pre-learning cognition about the simple pendulum. This teaching method has three features: (1) Teaching the thinking framework between the cycle of the simple pendulum and three conditions through "speed" and "moving di...
