Taylor, Holly A.; Jensen, Michael D.; Renshaw, Carl E.
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v17 n2 p147-64 1997
Describes two studies that assessed decision-making skills using common cognitive errors and evaluated the impact of computer-based role-playing exercises on the development of these skills. Results with high school students, undergraduates, and earth science professionals are discussed which indicate that well-designed computer-based laboratories can positively impact higher-order cognitive skills.
