Self-Regulation While Practicing Addition Facts on the Microcomputer.
Schultz, Karen A.
The purpose of the study was to survey self-regulation while responding to the addition facts. First graders' performance on microcomputer practice exercises was observed and recorded. Subjects could choose an analytic mode of operation using a symbolic or a finger strategy; or, they could choose a geometric mode of operation using a pictorial or manipulative strategy. An analysis of protocol data indicated that six subjects progressed from the analytic to the geometric modes of operation as problems increased in difficulty; the remaining seven subjects consistently chose either the analytic or harmonic modes of operation (combination of the analytic and geometric). All subjects were highly successful. Eleven of the 13 subjects scored at least 91% correct on each of the four levels of difficulty. The remaining two subjects scored at least 78% correct on each level. (Author)
