The Effect of Advisement and Competition on Transfer, Advisor Use, and Attitude toward Mathematics Using a Computer-Based Simulation Game.
Van Eck, Richard
This study looks at the roles that competition and context of advisement play in transfer, advisor use, attitude toward mathematics, and attitude toward instruction in a computer-based simulation game that required the use of mathematics skills. It is concluded that for transfer training, non-competitive simulation games might be the best choice, better at least than simulation games that include a time-pressure factor. Advisement appeared to be a good way to promote transfer and positive attitude toward mathematics and instruction, the latter two of which can indirectly promote future performance.
