Abstract

A pilot study was carried out with five participants to compare retrospective and concurrent verbal protocols (Think Afters and Think Alouds) as methodologies for the study of the information-seeking processes of 12-15 year old students using Microsoft Encarta 98. After a short training session in the Think Aloud Method, four activities of differing complexity were completed by the participants.
