Abstract: Students spontaneously engage in epistemic cognition when reading conflicting scientific information. This study examines how this epistemic cognition is related to students’ actual beliefs. In addition, the interplay of students’ epistemic beliefs and prior attitudes when encountering conflicting and partly attitude-inconsistent information on a controversial socio-scientific is studied using think-aloud methods.
