Lieber, Joan; Semmel, Melvyn I.
Journal of Special Education Technology, v10 n2 p14-23 Fall 1989
Twenty learning-handicapped and 20 nonhandicapped intermediate-grade children worked on a mathematics problem-solving task on a microcomputer. Their social and instructional interactions were compared as group configuration (individual, homogeneous dyad, and heterogeneous dyad) and task difficulty changed. The computer's effect on the conversation of partners was also investigated. (JDD)
