MetadataShow full item record
The authors explore the impact of students' knowledge of real life events has on the way they analyse data. This study found that primary students used context knowledge in three broad ways: to rationalise the data or their interpretations, in taking a critical stance toward the data, and in ways that were not necessarily productive or pertinent in addressing the task at hand.
