Abstract: Students' responses to scientific reasoning questions posted on an online discussion board were coded for completeness, coherence, accuracy, use of evidence, reasoning, and comprehensibility. Early performance was low for every dimension. By the end of the term, ratings of coherence and completeness increased but use of evidence decreased, and other dimensions stayed the same. Implications regarding the types of feedback students need to improve their understanding and use of scientific argumentation are discussed.
