|Abstract:||Much research on abstraction in learning has focused on domain-general abstraction as a developmental capacity or as a process of knowledge construction. However, this does not capture abstraction that happens in-the-moment as students make sense of novel phenomena and problem contexts. We operationalize abstraction in-the-moment as the extent to which students integrate prior knowledge while manipulating and transforming a problem space, and propose 4 actions of changing abstractness: concretizing, manipulating, restructuring, and generalizing.|
