Kardash, CarolAnne M.; Howell, Karen L.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n3 p524-35 Sep 2000
Investigates effects of epistemological beliefs and topic-specific beliefs on undergraduates' (N=40) cognitive and strategic processing of a dual-positional text. Findings reveal that epistemological beliefs about the speed of learning affected the overall number of cognitive processes exhibited, whereas topic-specific beliefs interacted with the nature of the information read to influence the specific type of cognitive processing used. (Contains 38 references, 4 tables, and an appendix.) (Author/GCP)
