Abstract: Resolving disagreements among multiple documents by identifying contradictions and reasoning about them is at the core of integrating information from multiple conflicting documents. This study reports the results of an experiment that examined the effectiveness of an epistemic scaffold for promoting productive epistemic discourse to reason about multiple conflicting documents to reach reasonable conclusions. The scaffold introduced possible reasons for why disagreements exist among multiple documents. The results show that the experimental groups exchanged more reasons for disagreements and referred to more types of reasons, including both those that appeared in the scaffold and their own original reasons. Excerpts of student discussions illustrate that the scaffold enabled richer discussions that considered diverse perspectives and possible reasons for disagreements. However, even the experimental groups drew their final conclusions based on only a few of the reasons they considered in their analysis.
