An experimental study investigated the influence of informational dependence on information appropriation as a function of epistemic authority's styles.

Because prior classroom research has primarily utilized multiple-choice exam performance, the…

In two studies it was predicted, and found,…

In a 2x2 factorial design participants (N=86) were either 1st year or 4th year university students, and the style of the message delivered by the epistemic…
