Instructional Strategies for Teaching Computer Programming: Interactions with the Cognitive Style Reflection-Impulsivity.
van Merrienboer, Jeroen J. G.
Journal of Research on Computing in Education, v23 n1 p45-53 Fall 1990
Describes two experiments, one with undergraduates and one with high school students, that tested instructional strategies for teaching computer programing. The cognitive styles of impulsivity and reflection are examined, completion strategy versus generation strategy is tested, and results support a preferential model rather than a compensatory model of learning.
