Learning and Instruction, v34 n6 p483-96 Dec 2000
Studied gender and social comparison effects in computer-based problem solving in studies involving 62 11- and 12-year-olds working in pairs on computers without verbal interaction (co-action) and 96 children working in co-action or interaction pairs. Polarization of sex differences was found in the co-action condition but not the interaction condition. Discusses results in terms of processes of social comparison. (SLD)
