Hewson, Claire; Charlton, John P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The use of e-assessment methods raises important concerns regarding the reliability and validity of these methods. Potential threats to validity include mode effects and the possible influence of computer-related attitudes. Although numerous studies have now investigated the validity of online assessments in noncourse-based contexts, few studies…

Wang, Hongyan; Pi, Zhongling; Hu, Weiping – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Instructor behaviour is known to affect learning performance, but it is unclear which specific instructor behaviours can optimize learning. We used eye-tracking technology and questionnaires to test whether the instructor's gaze guidance affected learners' visual attention, social presence, and learning performance, using four video lectures:…

Rekik, Ghazi; Khacharem, Aïmen; Belkhir, Yosra; Bali, Naila; Jarraya, Mohamed – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Recent studies exploring the effects of dynamic visualizations on learning compared with static visualizations have yielded mixed results. Procedural motor learning is one of the few fields in which dynamic representations have shown to be effective. Many of the studies have suggested that this advantage is mainly due to the activation of the…

Papadopoulos, Pantelis M.; Natsis, Antonis; Obwegeser, Nikolaus; Weinberger, Armin – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The aim of the present study (n = 113) was to examine how (objective and subjective) information on peers' preparation, confidence, and past performance can support students in answering correctly in audience response systems (aka clickers). The result analysis shows that in the "challenging" questions, in which answers diverged,…

Zibin, Aseel; Altakhaineh, Abdel Rahman Mitib – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study investigates the effect of blended learning on the development of clause combining as an aspect of the acquisition of written discourse by Jordanians who are learning English as a foreign language. Sixty participants majoring in English language at the University of Jordan took part in this study. The participants were divided into…

Kolpashnikova, Kamila; Bartolic, Silvia – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Computer-assisted instruction can change the way introductory statistics and quantitative methods courses are taught. Using a two-group pretest-posttest design, we conducted an experiment using an undergraduate social science student sample to investigate whether the introduction of statistical software to teaching quantitative methods would…

Hsia, Yen-Teh; Jong, Bin-Shyan; Lin, Tsong-Wuu; Liao, Ji-Yang – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Suppose learners use their free time to go online to review course materials, and they do so by taking optional tests that consist of multiple-choice questions (MCQs). What will happen if, for every practice question, there is always a choice (out of four possible choices) that is marked as "the (current) hot choice?" Will this make any…

Erbas, Cagdas; Demirer, Veysel – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study aimed to investigate the effects of augmented reality (AR) activities on students' academic achievement and motivation in a biology course. For this purpose, a mixed study was conducted, and a pretest and posttest control group model was used. In addition, the opinions of the experimental group students and the teacher about the AR…

Lin, Xiao-Fan; Deng, Cailing; Hu, Qintai; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Close links between students' conceptions of and approaches to learning were established in the past research. However, only a few quantitative studies investigated this relationship particularly with regard to mobile learning (m-learning). The correlation between learners' conceptions and approaches to m-learning was analysed using a partial…

Wang, Hong-You; Lin, Vivien; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Liu, Gi-Zen – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
To assess the effects and learner perceptions of context-aware ubiquitous language learning (CAULL), a green-building English-learning application (GBELA) employing sensing technology was created to develop participants' English listening and reading skills using smartphones and QR codes. This study investigated the effects of 40 participants'…
