Šrámek, Martin ; Teplá, Milada (advisor) ; Teplý, Pavel (referee) ; Kričfaluši, Dana (referee)
This thesis focuses on the prediction of academic success and item analysis of chemistry knowledge tests used in the admission procedure at the Faculty of Science, Charles University between 2016 and 2019. The first part of the thesis focuses on the possibilities of academic success prediction (earning a bachelor's degree within 4 years) based on various factors: (i) success rate in the admission procedure, (ii) study index (modified average of marks), (iii) success rate in each part of admission procedure, (iv) passing exams in selected mandatory subjects for students of Chemistry study programme, eventually (v) based on obtained marks in selected subjects (as in (iv)). Furthermore, a prediction of entering Year 2 was also completed for three of these factors (i, iii and iv). The sample consists of 1,780 applicants for Chemistry study programmes. The results of the analysis proved a medium effect on success in the admission procedure on entering Year 2 (d = 0.52) and a large effect on academic success (d = 0.67). By additional comparison of predictive ability of knowledge tests (Maths, Biology, Chemistry) we proved that the Chemistry test has a greater prediction ability compared to the others - low effect on entering Year (d = 0.22), but medium on academic success (d = 0.40). Additionally, we...

The created teaching materials contain theoretical starting points for the given topic of media education, methodological instructions for teachers and worksheets, teaching presentations or other...
Outdoor educational game on separation methods for lower secondary school students
Kydalová, Radka ; Stratilová Urválková, Eva (advisor) ; Teplý, Pavel (referee)
The Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021 had a particularly severe impact on teaching in all types of schools, especially in the Czech Republic. Science lessons could not actively develop the practical skills of pupils, who spent an enormous part of the day with online learning and online assignments. The aim of the diploma thesis was to create an outdoor science activity that can be carried out within the lower secondary science education, but also out-of-school (extracurricular) activities, e.g. in leisure groups, summer camps or even family-camp holidays. The game "Lahvius is looking for apprentices!" was created for teaching separation methods within lower secondary education. The game consists of 15 lists/control points, that participants meet on their way in terrain. At the last stop, participants prepare an extract and filtrate from plants they find in the surroundings. The guide (teacher) prepares the trail according to the Teachers guide, which is attached to this thesis. During the practical activity, it is recommended to guide the participants effectively and give them feedback on their work. The game was tested twice: a pilot version was tested at two summer camps, and a modified version was tested with pupils of two 7th grades of a Prague basic school. The participants filled in a short...

Souček, Vlastimil ; Šmejkal, Petr (advisor) ; Teplý, Pavel (referee)
Czech Law concerning work safety in high school laboratory in the Czech Republic is constantly changing, while these changes in the law might go unnoticed by high school teachers. These teachers are often not informed which law is currently in effect and if it has any impact on their teaching in chemical laboratories. Therefore, this work presents compiled laws that influence teaching in chemical laboratories, translates their meaning into comprehensible sentences and then puts them together to a summary of these laws. To keep this information up to date, a basic web design is included in this work that will be put on web, where it will be actualized by author of this thesis. On this web high school teachers will have the opportunity to easily access both original formulations and translated meaning of the law. Basic instructions for first aid in chemical laboratories, especially concerning exposition to dangerous chemical compounds will also be included in this work. Powered by TCPDF (
