Participant Confidence-Competence and Performance in Variable Collaborative Groups.
Evered, Lisa J.
Journal of Research and Development in Education, v31 n2 p63-68 Win 1998
Investigated relationships among confidence and competence and performance in variable collaborative groups of preservice elementary educators who worked to solve four mathematical problems that permitted several solutions and had varying degrees of difficulty. Results indicated that their confidence was relatively unaffected by problem difficulty or group composition. However, competence declined as problems increased in difficulty. (Author/SM)
