It cannot be accomplished by division of labour alone) and provided that the problem is relatively ill-structured. Whichever epistemology is preferred, participation is regarded as a crucial concept in the learning sciences that constitutes or at least leads to learning. Within the range of participation skills, our framework further distinguishes between three aspects: action, interaction, and task completion. “Action” refers to the general level of participation of an individual, irrespective of whether this action is in any way coordinated with the efforts of other group members.

This makes tasks like collaborative problem solving some of the key testbeds for the assessment of 21st century skills. Problem solving is an activity in which a learner perceives a discrepancy between a current state and a desired goal state, recognises that this discrepancy does not have an obvious or routine solution, and subsequently tries to act upon the given situation in order to achieve that goal state. It is accompanied by a number of mental and behavioural processes that might not necessarily take place in sequential order, but can run in parallel.

An example of coding of an element of cognitive behaviour from a direct action lies in U2L004A, where the same Clowns task (U2) is referred to, a local indicator (L), the indicator number (004), and Student A (A). This indicator codes the testing of all positions for the route taken by balls placed in the Clown’s mouths by Student (A), at a point when that Student A has access to at least three of the 12 balls. This action implies a relatively systematic approach to the exploration of the problem.
