|Abstract:||This study reports on a study of the influence of students’ goal—speed versus mastery—as they solve a computer science problem collaboratively. We conducted a study with 254 university students enrolled in introductory computer science, pairing based on the goal they reported for that day. Results with a comparison condition show that matching by goal may not benefit student learning unless other factors are also considered. However, for students who hold a mastery goal, pairing with another student who shares that goal may significantly improve the learning experience. These results advance our understanding of how we might adapt collaborative learning practices based on students' goals.|
