The choice/no-choice method provides a means of obtaining unbiased estimates of the performance characteristics of strategies. The three experiments in the study illustrate the method's usefulness for testing predictions of alternative models of strategy choice. The experiments focused on 20- and 70-year-olds' choices among mental calculation, use of a calculator, and use of pencil and paper as strategies for solving multidigit multiplication problems. As predicted by the Adaptive Strategy… CONTINUE READING
