Abstract: Group discourse has often been examined in computer-supported collaborative learning environments to develop adaptive scaffolds for students and intelligent cognitive assistants for teachers. This study leverages work in accountable talk and transactivity to focus on epistemics, or how participants establish, negotiate, and reproduce knowledge claims in collaborative discourse. We examined online chat data from 7 groups of middle school students who engaged in a game-based learning environment. Findings indicate that the framing of the game-based activities influenced how students interacted with one another. When attending to turns at talk, a combination of 1) epistemic status, 2) epistemic gradient, or the relationship between more and less knowledgeable persons, and 3) attention to norms of accountable talk generated more transactive discussions among students.
