Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper describes a novel instrument of assessing adolescent and adult students’ perception of arguments structure, nature, and quality as a method of adapting teaching and designing of argumentation tasks to learners’ epistemic knowledge of argumentation. The author’s goal is to present the steps of the validation of the instrument discussing validity and reliability issues, and to discuss potential uses of the instrument as a way to diagnose students’ status of argument quality perception before engaging them in collaborative tasks.
