A Study of the Problem Solving Activity in High School Students: Strategies and Self-Regulated Learning
Brad, Alexandru
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v4 n1 p21-30 2011
This study was conducted with the purpose of analyzing high school students' approach to problem solving activities, namely the metacognitive abilities and the strategies they employ. The results show that although students apply basic strategies well, they use a trial-and-error approach, they give-up when faced with difficulties and have deficiencies in metacognitive abilities, which are signals that must be taken into account. The conclusions suggest that greater attention should be given to the students' needs, putting more emphasis on reasoning and understanding, so that students can improve their self-regulated learning.
