The Structure of Intellect Protocol Analysis System: A Technique for the Investigation and Quantification of Problem Solving Processes.
Smith, Charlotte Ethel Oliver
A technique for investigating and quantifying problem solving mediating processes was developed; the question of whether this technique could be used to detect different approaches to problem solving among groups of subjects when measured over a time interval was studied. Results showed that processing modes differed as to professional interest (elementary or secondary education major), quantitative orientation (humanities, mathematics, or science major) and stability over time. Elementary and secondary education mathematics majors were found to be relatively stable as to processing pattern; however, the two groups exhibited different patterns. The technique detected a variety of processing modes and so was judged to be sensitive to differences in problem solving approaches. (Author/DT)
