Cevik, Yasemin Demiraslan; Andre, Thomas
Journal of Educational Technology, v9 n2 p17-30 Jul-Sep 2012
This study compared the impact of three types of case-based methods (worked example, faded worked example, and case-based reasoning) on preservice teachers' (n=71) decision making and reasoning related to realistic classroom management situations. Participants in this study received a short-term implementation of one of these three major approaches to case-based learning. Specifically, this study focused on analyzing students' open-ended responses to classroom management problems presented during instruction using one of these methods. The results showed the worked example group, compared to the case-based reasoning and faded worked example groups, consistently performed better on analyzing cases and solving problem cases related to classroom management.
