Chromatography as laboratory work for students in lower secondary school : and its effects on attitudes towards chemistry (English)
Abstract [sv]

Till den här undersökningen har en kromatografilaboration konstruerats. Högstadieelevers attityd gentemot kemi före och efter genomförandet av kromatografilaborationen jämförs. Genomförandet skedde vid Vetenskapens Hus i Stockholm. Även medföljande lärares upplevelse av laborationen och eventuell påverkan på elever undersöks. Frågeformulär används för undersökande av elevernas attityder gentemot kemi och intervjuer med medföljande lärare används som komplement till elevernas svar. För en grupp av de deltagande eleverna syns en förändring i attityd gentemot kemi i positiv riktning, vilket stämmer överens med elevgruppens lärares upplevelse. För den andra gruppen deltagande elever syns ingen förändring i attityd gentemot kemi, vilket stämmer överens med elevgruppens lärares upplevelse. Laborationen anses lämplig av de medföljande lärarna, oavsett om den har en affektiv påverkan på eleverna eller inte. Utifrån elevernas svar på frågeformulären och lärarintervjuerna går det att fastställa laborationens möjlighet att påverka elever affektivt, men även att denna påverkan inte är självklar.

Abstract [en]

In this report, a chromatography lab is constructed and the attitudes towards chemistry of students in lower secondary school are compared before and after the lab is carried out at Vetenskapens Hus in Stockholm. The attendant teachers’ experiences of the lab and potential effects on the students are also taken into consideration. Questionnaires are used to survey the students’ attitudes towards chemistry, and interviews with the attendant teachers are used as a complement to the students’ answers. For one group of students, a significant positive change in their attitudes towards chemistry is measured, which is consistent with their teacher’s experience. For the other group of students, there is no significant change in their attitudes towards chemistry, which is consistent with their teacher’s experience as well. The lab itself is seen as appropriate by the attendant teachers, regardless of whether it influences the students affectively or not. Based on the answers of the students and the interviews with the teachers, it is possible to conclude that the lab has the potential to influence the students affectively, but also that this influence isn’t a necessary effect of the lab.
