Pihlap, Sirje – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
Studies of the impact of various types of computer use on the results of learning and student motivation have indicated that the use of computers can increase learning motivation, and that computers can have a positive effect, a negative effect, or no effect at all on learning outcomes. Some results indicate that it is not computer use itself that…

Cutumisu, Maria; Blair, Kristen P.; Chin, Doris B.; Schwartz, Daniel L. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
We introduce one instance of a game-based assessment designed to measure students' self-regulated learning choices. We describe our overarching measurement strategy and we present "Posterlet", an assessment game in which students design posters and learn graphic design principles from feedback. We designed "Posterlet" to assess…

Anggoro, Florencia K.; Stein, Nancy L.; Jee, Benjamin D. – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2012
The present study examined the cognitive factors that influence children's physical science learning from a multimedia instruction. Using a causally coherent text and visual models, we taught 4th- and 7th-grade children about the observable and molecular properties of the three states of water. We manipulated whether the text was read by a tutor…
