Evaluating the effectiveness of the strategy 'Draw a diagram' as a cognitive tool for problem solving
Diezmann, Carmel M. (1995) Evaluating the effectiveness of the strategy 'Draw a diagram' as a cognitive tool for problem solving. In 18th Annual Conference of Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Darwin.
Traditionally the effectiveness of the strategy draw a diagram as a problem solving tool has been assessed by using end product measures such as frequency and spontaneity of diagram use, performance scores, solution times, and the appropriateness of the diagram drawn. This paper argues that these measures can be unreliable and proposes that the dynamic use of the diagram should be monitored to ensure the validity of the assessment.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
