Error Correction as an Adaptive Instructional Strategy for Computer-Based Instruction.
Lau, Chak Chi
Ninety-six male and female college students participated in an experiment designed to examine the feasibility of isolating the critical attributes in a given instructional example as an error correction mechanism for the purpose of improving instructional effectiveness and efficiency. Results indicated that although students with the critical attribute isolation correction method failed to show higher learning in a posttest than students with a conventional error correction method, the former students took less time on the posttest. Results also support research which suggests that error correction is an effective and efficient instructional strategy for computer-based instruction. (CMV)
