Studien zum Physik- und Chemielernen, Band 284
Constantly high student dropout rates in STEM subjects at German universities, which could be the result of low course success in introductory laboratory courses among other things and increasing criticism about their quality and effectiveness necessitate these laboratory courses to be examined thoroughly. This study investigated the learning goals of the General Chemistry laboratory course for first-year students in teacher training and factors for course success in order to make statements about the significance of laboratory courses for university education, particularly for long-term study success. For this purpose, a theoretical model that assumes the students prior knowledge and learning goal alignment between students and their lab instructors to be two defining factors for lab course success was used as a framework.
