Information Seeking on the Web: Navigational Skills of Grade-Six Primary School Students.
Large, Andrew; Beheshti, Jamshid; Moukdad, Haidar
Proceedings of the ASIS Annual Meeting, v36 p84-97 1999
Reports on research into the information-seeking habits of primary school children conducted under operational conditions. Findings reveal: the novice users favored browsing over analytic search strategies, although they showed some sophistication in construction of the latter; online help was ignored; and the children demonstrated a very high level of interactivity with the interface at the expense of thinking, planning and evaluating.
