Olsen, Deborah; Bekken, Barbara M.; McConnell, Kathryne Drezek; Walter, Charles T.
Journal of General Education, v60 n3 p139-171 2011
Baxter Magolda's Learning Partnerships model was used to create a program designed to foster student epistemological development. To assess its effectiveness, the Measure of Epistemological Reflection was administered to the experimental cohort and a comparable group in the traditional general education program. Results indicate that the model enhanced epistemological growth. (Contains 7 tables.)
