Currently, two national investigatory projects are underway, the goals of which are determine how students engage in research and how they use source material in their work. This presentation summarizes the results of the these two studies and proposes a third based on think-aloud protocols that will provide more insight into students’ decision making process when initially selecting or ignoring source material for use in their work.
