Abstract: Inquiry environments in science classes have increasingly incorporated more features of authentic scientific practice. However, relatively few environments have incorporated a critical feature of scientific practice: evaluation of evidence quality. This paper reports results from two studies in middle-school life science classes that investigate seventh graders' competence in evaluating evidence. Overall, we found evidence that students have strong evaluative capabilities that can be built upon in instruction.
