The Effects of Worked Examples in Computer-Based Instruction: Focus on the Presentation Format of Worked Examples and Prior Knowledge of Learners
Kyun, Sun A.; Lee, Hyunjeong
Asia Pacific Education Review, v10 n4 p495-503 Dec 2009
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of presentation formats of worked examples and the interaction effects between the presentation formats of worked examples and the prior knowledge of learners. An investigation with 97 middle school students working in four conditions (CPWE, CWE, PWE, and the control group) was conducted. The results indicate that CPWE was the most effective condition in retention and transfer. In addition, a partial expertise reversal effect was revealed in the "element transfer test." High prior knowledge learners in both CPWE and PWE were superior to those who were in CWE and the control group, while low prior knowledge learners in CPWE were superior to those who were in other conditions.
