Effect of the Problem Space on Subgoal Facilitation
Reed, Stephen K.; Abramson, Austin
Journal of Educational Psychology, 68, 2, 243-6, Apr 76
Two experiments using two versions of the missionary and cannibal problem investigated the conditions under which the specification of a subgoal would facilitate problem solving. Specification of a subgoal in the smaller problem space improved performance only in reaching the subgoal when it was not too distant from the initial state. (Author/DEP)
