This article examines the use and application of an Ill-Structured problem to Pre-Service elementary teachers in Korea in order to find implications of Pre-Service teacher education with regard to contextualized problem solving by analyzing experiences of Ill-Structured problem solving. Participants were divided into small groups depending on the levels of motivation. They participated in a Five-Step phase labeled A-B-C-D-E [Analyze/Browse/Create/Decision-Making/Evaluate] for problem solving. Result showed that the Phase-Specific analysis of Ill-Structured problem solving processes from the levels of motivation could decide the quality of their problem solving in subsequent phases.
