Students' Understanding of the Co-Ordination of Theory and Evidence in Science.
Leach, John
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n8 p789-806 Sep 1999
Describes a study of the ways in which 9- to 16-year-old students attempted logical problems related to coordinating theory and evidence when the theories in question are scientific. Finds that most students made some reference to evidence in selecting and using their explanations, although most students also seemed capable of holding theory and evidence-knowledge claims separately. Contains 19 references. (Author/WRM)
