In elementary schools there is increasing use of computer-based environments as information sources. Information is hot-linked creating a hypertext environment. CDROM programs are closed hypertext environments with limited links between nodes and they present a unique way of locating information with no print-based equal. As students use CDROM programs they need to employ search strategies relevant to hypertext and the program. This study investigated the search patterns of 10 - 12 years old students using a commercially produced encyclopedia-based CDROM. Each group of students was given the same task, which was set in context, by the classroom teacher. Students using the encyclopedia CDROM set up mental maps and predictions based on a print equivalent. The success and search patterns across groups varied according to the search strategy employed and the user orientation to the program and the task. The effectiveness also depended on the group's knowledge of the topic, knowledge of the program and their mental map of the program’s construction.
