dc.description.abstractThis chapter examines the relationship between epistemological beliefs and dispositions and their role on ill-defined problem solving in solo and duo contexts. The results showed that different aspects of epistemological beliefs correlated significantly with some dispositions, and that solo and duo contexts triggered different aspects of the constructs, although both of them were important for ill-defined problem solving. Lastly, the findings showed that emotions were associated with some aspects of epistemological beliefs and dispositions in the duo problem-solving context only.
