Beyond p-values: Using Bayesian Data Analysis in Science Education Research

Marcus Kubsch, Insa Stamer, Mara Steiner, Knut Neumann & Ilka Parchmann
In light of the replication crisis in psychology, null-hypothesis significance testing (NHST) and p-values have been heavily criticized and various alternatives have been proposed, ranging from slight modifications of the current paradigm to banning p-values from journals. Since the physics education research community often relies on quantitative statistical approaches, the challenges the replication crisis poses to these approaches need to be considered. p-values suffer primarily from the fact that they carry little information by themselves...

Biodiversity citizen science: outcomes for the participating citizens

Maria Peter, Tim Diekötter, Tim Höffler & Kerstin Kremer
1. Citizen science (CS) is regarded a promising format in environmental and sustainability education as well as in science education. CS projects often assume that participation in the project influences, for example, participants' knowledge or behaviour. 2. We investigated whether and to what extent biodiversity citizen science (BDCS) projects, from the participants' self-reported perspective, achieve the following six participant outcomes: (1) content, process, and nature of science knowledge, (2) skills of science inquiry, (3) self-efficacy...

The idea that noncrop habitat enhances pest control and represents a win–win opportunity to conserve biodiversity and bolster yields has emerged as an agroecological paradigm. However, while noncrop habitat in landscapes surrounding farms sometimes benefits pest predators, natural enemy responses remain heterogeneous across studies and effects on pests are inconclusive. The observed heterogeneity in species responses to noncrop habitat may be biological in origin or could result from variation in how habitat and biocontrol are...
