|Abstract:||This paper explores the relationship between students' conceptions about warranting claims in science class and their beliefs about how professional scientists warrant claims. An interview was used to measure beliefs about school science, and a questionnaire was used to measure beliefs about professional science. The difference of these expressed ideas in the two contexts have implications for understanding students' personal epistemologies of science as well as the coherence of students' epistemological beliefs.|
