Epistemic Games: A Multi-Layered Task Analysis
written by Michael Vignal and Elizabeth Gire
Physics education researchers have successfully employed the epistemic games framework as a descriptive framework for episodes of physics problem solving. Researchers have used this framework to analyze behaviors and activities at a variety of grain sizes. We conduct an analysis of layers of epistemic games of different grain size in student reasoning and behavior during a group interview of upper-division physics students plotting a 2D vector field. In our analysis, we propose three new epistemic games: Pick, Plug, and Plot; Plotting; and Answer Making with Sensemaking. We discuss how analyzing the interview with each of these games provides insight into the students' reasoning and how considering these games together in a multi-layered analysis yields additional insights.
