Abstract

Epistemic cognition has become an area of interest among education researchers. However, characterizing epistemic elements of cognition is difficult. Using computational approaches can contribute to conceptualizing and operationalizing what we mean by epistemic cognition. We present how we used two computational methods to see new dimensions of epistemic elements in students' written work. Our work demonstrates how computational tools refine our understanding of, and tools to examine, dimensions of epistemic cognition.
