Ge, Xun; Land, Susan M.
Educational Technology Research and Development, v51 n1 p21-38 2003
Examined the effects of question prompts and peer interactions in scaffolding undergraduate students' problem-solving processes in an ill-structured task in problem representation, developing solutions, making justifications, and monitoring and evaluating. Qualitative and quantitative results suggest that the peer interaction process must be guided and monitored with various strategies to maximize its benefits. (Contains 59 references.) (Author/LRW)
