"Laboratory Exercises Help Me Memorize the Scientific Truths": A Study of Eighth Graders' Scientific Epistemological Views and Learning in Laboratory Activities.
Tsai, Chin-Chung
Science Education, v83 n6 p654-74 Nov 1999
Describes a study that explored the interplay between students' scientific epistemological views (SEVs) and their learning in school laboratory activities. Finds that students having SEVs oriented to constructivist views of science tend to focus more on negotiating the meanings of experiments with their peers than students with SEVs more in line with empiricist views of science. Contains 49 references. (Author/WRM)
