"Does Yours Eat Leaves?" Cooperative Learning in an Educational Software Task.
Strommen, Erik F.
Journal of Computing in Childhood Education, v4 n1 p45-56 1993
Studied 28 pairs of fourth graders using an educational software game under cooperative conditions, in which students played against the computer, and competitive conditions, in which students played against each other. The cooperative environment resulted in more correct answers than the competitive environment. The only strategies related to obtaining correct answers were those involving children working together.
