CURCIO, Juan Manuel; PERALTA, Nadia Soledad  e  CASTELLARO, Mariano. Written argumentation in psychology first year college students. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2022, vol.12, n.3, pp.4-17.  Epub 30-Nov-2022. ISSN 1688-7026.

The argumentation it’s a cultural competence developed throughout life that involves complex cognitive processes and is necessary for the student academic development and especially of the college student. Due to the fact that written argumentation is a common activity in the college career, the objective of this research is to analyze the written argumentative competence of first year college students belonging to a career at the National University of Rosario (UNR in Spanish). We suggest the use of an evaluation model inspired by Garcia-Milá et al. (2016) which is based on the integration of justifications, objections, and counter-arguments to analyze the written argumentative competence of first year college students. The sample was made up of 187 college students from the first year of psychology career. We found that half of the students present a basic argumentative competence. Even so, it`s a good start from which to improve.
