"School-Based Epistemologies"?: Exploring Conceptions of How, What, and Why Students Know.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v16 n4 p299-315 Fall 1993
Twenty-three intermediate grade students (seven with learning difficulties) completed a concept mapping and vocabulary quiz, with instructions highlighting the value of learning goals or performance goals. Children with varying learning histories mediated in-school learning with qualitatively distinct epistemologies, and the "learning goals" task instructions significantly enhanced students' thinking.
