Self-Regulated Problem-Solving Awareness among Korean Children.
Gorrell, Jeffrey; And Others
Korean children's knowledge of appropriate self-regulated behaviors related to the solving of school-based or nonschool-based programs was studied. An attempt was made to determine the grade level (kindergarten, first, third, and fifth) differences in perceptions of appropriate problem-solving behaviors from the perspective of self-regulation research. Twenty male and 20 female South Korean children in Seoul in each of the four grades were interviewed during normal school hours. Primary findings are that Korean children exhibit relatively high levels of self-regulation responses on the interview across all age levels and that for nonschool settings, older children exhibit greater understanding of self-regulation in problem solving than younger children. These age trends suggest an improvement in metacognitive knowledge about self-regulation. The greater awareness of older children in nonschool settings may be an indicator of their more natural responses than responses associated with schooling. An appendix contains the problem-solving interview questions. (Contains 3 tables and 24 references.) (SLD)
