Cole, Rebecca Pollard; Goetz, Ernest T.; Willson, Victor
Journal of College Reading and Learning, v31 n1 p60-72 Fall 2000
Examines the epistemological beliefs of 100 underprepared college freshmen by asking these students what their beliefs are when they enter college, if these beliefs change after the initial exposure to college, and what structures underlie their beliefs. Claims the beliefs of underprepared students are best represented by two belief dimensions, the nature of learning and the nature of knowledge. (NH)
