Abstract

In this poster, we discuss the analysis of students’ online posts for an introductory human-centered design course using a quality of argument coding scheme based on four criteria: 1) alternative claim or idea; 2) weighing of options; 3) use of evidence; and 4) professionalism. While almost all posts demonstrate professionalism (95.9%), few posts justified claims by weighing options (17.5%) or using fact-based evidence (2.1%). A minority of posts includes alternative claims or ideas (13.4%).
