Overt and Covert Verbal Problem-Solving Strategies: Developmental Trends in Use, Awareness, and Relations with Task Performance in Children Aged 5 to 17.
Winsler, Adam; Naglieri, Jack
Child Development, v74 n3 p659-78 May-Jun 2003
This study explored 5- to 17-year-olds' use, self report, and awareness of verbal problem-solving strategies and strategy effectiveness. Findings indicated that children's verbal strategies moved from overt, to partially covert, to fully covert forms with age. Self-reports of strategy use were accurate yet incomplete. Strategy awareness was low and increased with age. Self-talk was unrelated to task performance for older children. (Author/KB)
