Epistemic Beliefs and Their Relation to Multiple-Text Comprehension: A Norwegian Program of Research
Ferguson, Leila E.
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v59 n6 p731-752 2015
Nowadays, students are required to use multiple information sources to complete tasks, both in and out of school. The beliefs that students hold about knowledge and knowing--their epistemic beliefs-- have been linked to successful integration of information across multiple texts. Framed by literature on epistemic belief research from an educational psychology perspective, this article reviews a recent Norwegian program of research on students' epistemic beliefs. The research has implications for educational research and practice that are discussed.
