Students' language repertoires for prediction

Abstract : For communication about prediction (both relating to probability and to conjecture), language is by nature recursive – language is an indicator of meaning as well as a force that shapes meaning. We describe how this recursive nature of language impacted the choices we made in a cross-sectional longitudinal study aimed at gaining insight into children's language repertoires relating to conjecture. We then use some of the data from the project to identify issues relating to interpreting data in such a context. Finally, we raise questions about implications for educators.
