Effects of Argumentation Scaffolds on Student Performance on Conceptual Physics Problems

Effects of Argumentation Scaffolds on Student Performance on Conceptual Physics Problems

Studies have shown that embedding scientific argumentation in problem solving can enhance problem solving skills. However, research has also indicated that students have difficulties constructing arguments without appropriate scaffolds. We investigated the use of argumentation scaffolds on studentsÔøΩ argumentation quality, conceptual quality, and solution strategies on conceptual problems in an introductory physics class. In this mixed method...
