This study compared Pairs of students with Single students in web search tasks.
The underlying hypothesis was that peer-to-peer collaboration encourages
students to articulate their thoughts, which in turn has a facilitative effect on
the regulation of the search process as well as search outcomes. Both
hypotheses were supported by the results. Pairs located the target information
more often and in less time than Singles did. Pairs also employed a richer
repertoire of search strategies and were more proficient in monitoring and
evaluating their search behaviour. Implications of these findings for practice
and further research are discussed.
