Problem-Solving Behaviors during a Genetics Computer Simulation: Beyond the Expert/Novice Dichotomy.
Simmons, Patricia E.; Lunetta, Vincent N.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v30 n2 p153-73 Feb 1993
The problem-solving behaviors and genetics concepts employed by experts and novices during interaction with the computer simulation CATLAB, were examined. Thirteen subjects (3 experts and 10 novices) investigated a common hypothesis on a specific genetic trait during the computer activity. Using naturalistic research methods, general patterns of problem-solving behaviors and genetics conceptual organizers were extracted from the data. (Author/PR)
