Strategic sequencing would also help (rather than randomly picking).   My older students who at least know things like the fives and tens are 'way ahead of the "where's the calculator" group.   
My son, a 4th grader, is still struggling with memorizing his multiplication facts. Being his math teacher dad, this kills me. Sorta. While it is true that he is struggling to memorize his multiplication facts, my real concer...

Strategic sequencing totally makes sense! i will incorporate that into my idea. Thanks!

I agree.  I found it really interesting that Walcerz said student beliefs and behaviors were the problem -- but then the "example" of this focused on the high percentage of adjuncts & the reliance on grad students.  THose aren't, actually, examples of student beliefs and behaviors.   
       If the student "self-regulation" was such a big deal, it makes me wonder -- maybe the students were, oh, going to Facebook instead of using ALEKS and then they were saying they were "on track." 
     Our school has lots more success, with ALEKS --  but students have teachers who are teaching them, not monitoring ALEKS progress.   ALEKS is the practice.   THey've set things up, for instance, so students take quizzes -- and get three cracks at them.   (I work in a computer lab where many of them come to do that stuff.)   THey learn a lot about how to study and learn.   I had students ecstatic because they were getting 100% on quizzes... and I can also tell you that yes, they're retaining and transferring more (they keep coming back for those next levels).

For visual learners???  There are very few visual explanations.  
The explanations are also procedural.  
While there's a lot I like about it, I would never, ever recommend it as the only "course" for a student.   If there's good instruction in the concepts, it's a great resource for providing practice that gives instant feedback to the student, but I have worked with students who figure out their own "rules" for getting a set of problems right and then get really frustrated when those rules don't work for the next set.

I'm afraid there's been a cultural shift and ... people seem to respond more to the mystical "don't ask us how!  We'll just get it perfect every time!"  sales stuff.   I think it has to do with how they were educated. People who try to promote things that are "really good -- and here's why, though it isn't perfect and it's still evolving"  are old school Scientific method types...

(and I've looked at Knewton ... more procedural "content delivery."   Very robotic.)

Question:   Did you perhaps do a control study and ask another group of questions to "complete the painting" (w/ no 'correct answer') two separate times to see whether the repeat of the question inspired creativity?   I doubt it did -- even I would tend to ask "right?  Wonder what they're likely to want..."  and would have striven for a traditional "point bearing" drawing.
