Describes a qualitative study in which 16-year-old Norwegian pupils dealt with a socio-scientific issue. Investigates aspects of students' decision-making concerning a local version of the well-known controversial issue of whether or not power transmission lines increase the risk for childhood leukemia. Some of the resolution strategies imply that autonomous evaluations were made. (Contains 45 references.) (Author/YDS)
