In biology education, constructivist learning environments are becoming increasingly important. However, there is no time-effective method for measuring characteristics of constructivist processes in biology classes. In this paper, a short questionnaire for the analysis of constructivist process characteristics according to REINMANN and MANDL (2006) based on a longer questionnaire (URHAHNE, MARSCH, WILD & KRÜGER, 2011) will be presented. Items for the short version were selected using content criteria. The instrument covers the features active, self-regulated, emotional, situational, social, and constructive with six subscales and two or three items each. In two studies with 288 students aged 11.9 years and 119 students aged 16.2 years, the measurement reliability and validity is demonstrated by probabilistic and classical test methods. Confirmatory factor analyses show that a sixfactor model is superior to alternative models. Rasch analyses also reveal that the individual scales each represent one facet of a construct and that the scaling on all scales proves to be equidistant. A comparison of the results of the short scale with those of the long version documents adequate construct equivalence. The short questionnaire thus proves to be a reliable and time-effective means for assessing constructivist process characteristics in biology classes. [less ▲]
