Abstract Title: Making Sense of Different Generalization and Selection Practices in PER
Abstract: In this poster, we will unpack the claim that different ways of generalizing and selecting in PER are tied to different assumptions about knowledge, our social world, and our reasons for knowing it.  In particular, we will compare and contrast the assumptions made by two different research paradigms: what we call case-oriented PER – which seeks to refine and develop theory by linking that theory to cases – and what we call recurrence-oriented PER – which seeks to inform instructional predictions by discerning reproducible, representative patterns and relationships.  We will discuss how the different assumptions instantiated within these two paradigms can help us make sense of differences in generalization and selection practices in PER.
