Abstract

This poster explores the ways in which students participating in a scientific modeling curriculum engaged with a specific scaffold, the model-Evidence Link' (MEL) diagram, designed to reduce cognitive load and facilitate modeling literacy. Completed MEL diagrams, along with the small-group argumentation sessions they supported, represent rich sources of data on students' norms for model-evidence coordination, both before and after the scaffold introduction We consider various approaches to coding these data and present preliminary results.
