  3. 3. Assessing Scientific Literacy as Participation in Civic Practices Affordances and constraints for developing a practice for authentic classroom assessment of argumentation, source critique and decision-making

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Mathematics and Science Education, Stockholm University

    Author : Jens Anker-Hansen; Maria Andrée; Per-Olof Wickman; Aik Ling Tan; [2015]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; scientific literacy; assessment; authentic; communities of practice; expansive learning; argumentation; peer assessment; moderation meetings; naturvetenskapsämnenas didaktik; Science Education;

    Abstract : This thesis takes a departure from a view of scientific literacy as situated in participation in civic practices. From such a view, it becomes problematic to assess scientific literacy through decontextualised test items only dealing with single aspects of participation in contexts concerned with science.
