Summary

Media reports are an important source of new scientific knowledge, and this information can affect the decision making process. This study explores how formal educational settings prepare students to evaluate informal scientific information. Participants in this study came from different science backgrounds, including adults who did not study post secondary studies and university students from different majors. The differences among the participants were investigated. (YDS)
