Scientific Reasoning in Science Education: From Global Measures to Fine-Grained Descriptions of Students' Competencies

Moritz Krell, Andreas Vorholzer, Andreas Nehring
2022 Education Sciences  
In modern science- and technology-based societies, competencies that allow citizens to reason scientifically play a key role for science- and technology-based careers as well as for democratic co-determination  ...  We argue that research would profit from examining and reporting scientific reasoning by using more fine-grained perspectives in addition to the rather global grain sizes typically reported.  ...  On the basis of this "dual search", Klahr and colleagues distinguished between the scientific reasoning processes of hypotheses generation ("search hypothesis"), experimental design ("test hypothesis")  ...
