Abstract: In the current “post-truth” era, there is a growing need to promote apt epistemic practices in science education. In this study, we investigated two high-school biology students’ epistemic practices during a modeling unit and appraised them for aptness using the Apt-AIR framework. Additionally, we analyzed their responses to a post-implementation focus group interview, designed to elicit their metacognition regarding epistemic practices, as they answered probing questions about practices within the curriculum and reflected on video clips of other students engaging with the units. We document the epistemic practices that students engage in during a modeling unit and evaluate the extent to which they are apt. Findings suggest a disassociation between students’ cognitive engagement in modeling practices and their metacognitive understanding.
