Horticulture students link problem-solving to employment
Date:3/17/2011

Results showed that students perceived problem-solving as an important skill and were concerned with finding the best solution to problems. However, students were more concerned with obtaining the right answer than developing a strategy to solve the problems. "That the students said that finding the best solution (to a problem) is among the more important aspects of problem-solving indicates that they understand how their problem-solving impacts the people they are trying to satisfy, in either an academic or a business situation", the authors wrote.

Students in the study rated the online learning environment as adequate, reporting that they liked the variety of resources available and the fact that case information was consolidated in a single location. Further research at Iowa State is focusing on designing a more user-oriented interface for the PSLP that would allow instructors to create, manage, assess, and gather data on their cases. The environment is also being integrated with other ill-structured problem-solving systems at Iowa State and other universities.
