Simpson, Henry K.; Pellegrino, James W.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v85 n3 p539-50 Sep 1993
The effects of 2 different kinds of descriptive models (metaphor and flow chart) on the learning of a computer command language were studied for 37 computer experienced and 47 nonexperienced undergraduates (57 females and 27 males). Results show that metaphor improves performance of most subjects on most transfer items, with inexperienced subjects benefiting most. (SLD)
