Abstract: Media, information, and critical literacy have long been viewed as key to developing informed and active citizens. However, there has been little focus in civic education on developing young peoples’ epistemic understanding of media used in politics or personal reflections on their own role in this media culture, both of which are key to effective youth engagement with politics in the media age. Quality models for measuring students’ abilities to perform in these areas are virtually non-existent. Here we describe our measures of epistemic understanding of political media and self-efficacy for political engagement.
