A Process Model for Missionaries--Cannibals and Other River-Crossing Problems
Jeffries, Robin; And Others
Cognitive Psychology, 9, 4, 412-40, Oct 77
The water jug task model was extended to four variations of the Missionaries--Cannibals river-crossing problem. Different cover stories resulted in large differences in number of illegal moves, but no difference in number of legal moves to solution. The three-stage process model explains both legal and illegal moves. (Author/GDC)
