The Interactive Effects of the Availability of Objectives and/or Rules on Computer-Based Learning: A Replication.
Merrill, Paul F.; And Others
To replicate and extend the results of a previous study, this project investigated the effects of behavioral objectives and/or rules on computer-based learning task performance. The 133 subjects were randomly assigned to an example-only, objective-example, rule example, or objective-rule example group. The availability of rules and/or objectives reduced the number of examples required to meet criterion performance and increased posttest performance. In addition, rules reduced display latency and test item response latency and increased retention test performance. Rules also decreased the level of within-task state anxiety. (Author/RH)
