Does the Arrangement of Embedded Text versus Linked Text in Homework Systems Make a Difference in Students Impressions, Attitudes, and Perceived Learning?
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 25, No. 5 (2016) pp. 704–714
Students in a first-semester general chemistry course at a large southwestern university completed a 3-week homework assignment using MindTap, a Cengage Learning product. MindTap is the first major electronic system that has homework questions...
The Effects of a Two-Year Molecular Visualization Experience on Teachers' Attitudes, Content Knowledge, and Spatial Ability
Journal of Chemical Education Vol. 85, No. 5 (May 2008) pp. 718–723
This study measures changes in teachers' attitudes, content knowledge, and spatial ability following a two-year visualization workshop experience. The workshop involved intensive, half-day sessions over three weeks for two consecutive summers, in...
Journal of Research in Science Teaching Vol. 32, No. 5 (1995) pp. 521–34
A Particulate Nature of Matter Evaluation Tests was used to explore the effect of computer animations depicting the particulate nature of matter on (n=400) college students' mental models and comprehension of chemical phenomena. Treatment groups...
Identifying Student Use of Ball-and-Stick Images versus Electrostatic Potential Map Images via Eye Tracking
Journal of Chemical Education Vol. 90, No. 2 (February 2013) pp. 159–164
This pilot study examined students' use of ball-and-stick images versus electrostatic potential maps when asked questions about electron density, positive charge, proton attack, and hydroxide attack with six different molecules (two alcohols,...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 16, No. 5 (October 2007) pp. 395–400
Laboratory and demonstration have long been used to supplement lecture in chemistry education. Current research indicates that students are better served by laboratories which exercise the higher-order cognitive skills, such as inquiry-based...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 13, No. 3 (September 2004) pp. 315–323
Different visualization techniques have been used for teaching chemistry concepts. Previous studies have shown that when molecular animations and video demonstrations are used, students seem to better correlate all three levels of representation:...
The Effect of Viewing Order of Macroscopic and Particulate Visualizations on Students' Particulate Explanations

Journal of Chemical Education Vol. 89, No. 8 (August 2012) pp. 979–987
A prior study showed that students best make predictions about the outcome of opening a valve between two flasks containing a fluid or vacuum when they view both a demonstration video and a particulate animation, but the study showed no influence...

Learning and Instruction Vol. 26, No. 1 (August 2013) pp. 12–21
Students are frequently presented with novel visualizations introducing scientific concepts and processes normally unobservable to the naked eye. Despite being unfamiliar, students are expected to understand and employ the visualizations to solve...
