Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Wolff-Michael Roth and Anita Roychoudhury
A study involving 42 students enrolled in a physics course was conducted to document students' epistemologies and their concurrent views about knowing and learning. Analyses revealed a spectrum of epistemological commitments commensurable with positions from objectivism to relativism. Implications to classroom environment are discussed.
