Status of PCK level for Master of Chemistry Education under “REDOX” topic

Pingping Li, Dongmei Wang, Kui Wang


The PCK level of the master of chemical education not only aff ects the professional development of the individual, but
also relates to the future quality of chemical education in our country. Taking the first class of “REDOX reaction” as an example, this
paper analyzes the current situation of PCK level of master of Chemical education through questionnaire survey, and obtains the PCK
level of master of Chemical education and the level of various elements. Further analysis shows that master of chemical education has
poor understanding of curriculum standards and lack of teaching practice experience, resulting in low PCK level. Finally, according to the
research results, some suggestions on the development of PCK for master of Chemical education are put forward.
