Abstract: Students rarely have the opportunity to pose scientific questions or participate in research design. In this study, we identify the criteria that scientists used to guide a group of seven undergraduate students during an extended phase of project articulation. We categorize the criteria according to epistemic and social dimensions and describe the ways in which the students were able to reason with these criteria as they developed their question and research plan.
