|Abstract:||It has been shown that continuous and faded collaboration scripts can foster important components of scientific literacy such as online search skills. The present paper studies the effects of these types of scripts on learners' practice of the strategy suggested by the script, as well as the relation of the learners' and their learning partners' practice of the strategy to the development of online search skills. Data from a four-week field study with 129 ninth-grade students in three conditions (no script, continuous script and faded script) were analyzed. Findings indicate positive effects of both scripts compared to unsupported collaboration on the practice of the strategy. Learners' own, but not their learning partners' practice of the strategy predicted their development of online search skills. These results indicate that neither mere exposure to the script nor observation of learning partners performing the strategy explain the effects of scripts on learning outcomes.|
