Analysis of Group Problem-solving Process in Mathematics Performance Assessment of Grade Six Elementary School Children

Shih, Chien-chi 04 July 2004 (has links)
The purpose of this research is to investigate group problem-solving processes , interactions , and also, the factors that influence the operation on performance assessment. The main points for this study are: 1.What kind of situation does the model of group problem-solving form? 2.What situation does the group participate in each process of problem-solving? 3.What changes do the group participate in each stage of problem-solving after performance assessment? 4.What influences do manipulatives make on the operation of problem-solving processes? 5.What do the members think about the method of assessment? The method of this research is as follow. The investigators referred to the mathematics textbook (Volume 11) to develop five units of performance assessment. The participants were a group of four 6th grade elementary school children in Kaohsiung. The investigator collected the think-aloud protocols of the group and observed the behaviors from video and recordings. Finally, in order to understand children¡¦s feelings of assessment, the investigator arranged semi-structured interviews. The data was used to prepare chart according to Schoenfeld¡¦s model, also its distribution table, and the ratio of participation. The main conclusions of this research are: 1.The process of group problem-solving is affected by discussions among peers. 2.The model of process of problem-solving is affected by actually performing and acting out. 3.The group may or may not be engaged in all stages of problem-solving. 4.The changes of problem-solving stage for each member were different. 5.The use of manipulatives affects each problem-solving stage. 6.Children expressed that they enjoyed group performance assessments. Based on results of this study, the investigator highly recommended performance assessment to take place in elementary mathematics classroom.

Locus of control, need for cognition, and a hierarchical approach to real-world problem solving : searching for a problem solving personality

Vanhorn, Renee E. January 1994 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of two problem-solving techniques and two personality variables upon the quantity and self-reported quality of solutions people generated to an ill-structured problem. College students completed the Locus of Control and Need for Cognition Scales and, after having been trained in either brainstorming or a hierarchical problem-solving method, they used their new skill to solve a problem. They also rated their solutions on quality. Subjects in the hierarchical condition produced more solutions than those in brainstorming. Moreover, those in the hierarchical group produced solutions of subjectively higher quality than did the brainstormers. Analyses of the personality variables suggested that as need for cognition increased, people generated more solutions before training. No relationship was found between need for cognition and quality ratings. Locus of control was not related to either quantity or quality. Implications for business are discussed and suggestions for future research are provided. / Department of Psychological Science

The strategies used by ten grade 7 students, working in single-sex dyads, to solve a technological problem

Welch, Malcolm W. (Malcolm William) January 1996 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the problem-solving strategies of students as they attempted to find a solution to a technological problem. Ten Grade 7 students, who had received no prior technology education instruction, were formed into single-sex dyads and provided with a design brief from which they designed and made a technological solution. The natural talk between the subjects was transcribed. A description of their designing-in-action was added to the transcript. Actions were coded using an empirically derived scheme grounded in both a general problem-solving model and theoretical models of the design process. Segments coded as designing were analyzed using descriptive statistics. This analysis provided the data for mapping, that is, visually representing the design process used by subjects. / Results showed that novice designers do not design in the way described in textbooks. Their strategy is not linear but highly iterative. Subjects developed their ideas using three-dimensional materials rather than two-dimensional sketches. They were unlikely to generate several possible solutions prior to modelling, but developed solutions serially. The act of modelling stimulated the generation of additional ideas. Evaluation occurred repeatedly throughout their designing.
