Schroeder, Noah L.; Adesope, Olusola O. – Educational Technology & Society, 2015
Advances in information technologies have resulted in the use of pedagogical agents to facilitate learning. Although several studies have been conducted to examine the effects of pedagogical agents on learning, little is known about gender stereotypes of agents and how those stereotypes influence student learning and attitudes. This study…

Ardasheva, Yuliya; Wang, Zhe; Adesope, Olusola O.; Valentine, Jeffrey C. – Review of Educational Research, 2017
This meta-analysis synthesized recent research on strategy instruction (SI) effectiveness to estimate SI effects and their moderators for two domains: second/foreign language and self-regulated learning. A total of 37 studies (47 independent samples) for language domain and 16 studies (17 independent samples) for self-regulated learning domain…

Adesope, Olusola O.; Trevisan, Dominic A.; Sundararajan, Narayankripa – Review of Educational Research, 2017
The testing effect is a well-known concept referring to gains in learning and retention that can occur when students take a practice test on studied material before taking a final test on the same material. Research demonstrates that students who take practice tests often outperform students in nontesting learning conditions such as restudying,…

Wang, Zhe; Sundararajan, Narayankripa; Adesope, Olusola O.; Ardasheva, Yuliya – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
Although the seductive details effect, a phenomenon where interesting but irrelevant pictures impede comprehension, is well documented, studies examining ways of moderating its detrimental impact on learning remain few. The present study examined the effect of note-taking on the seductive details effect. Chinese undergraduate participants (N = 91)…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Adesope, Olusola O. – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2014
After more than a decade of pedagogical agent research, this review synthesizes the affective implications of learning with pedagogical agents. The review investigates different affective measures within 99 pedagogical agent outcome measures. The results suggest that learners may prefer pedagogical agents compared to non-agent control conditions,…

Castro-Alonso, Juan C.; Wong, Mona; Adesope, Olusola O.; Ayres, Paul; Paas, Fred – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Studies comparing the instructional effectiveness of dynamic versus static visualizations have produced mixed results. In this work, we investigated whether gender imbalance in the participant samples of these studies may have contributed to the mixed results. We conducted a meta-analysis of randomized experiments in which groups of students…

Adesope, Olusola O.; Nesbit, John C. – Learning and Instruction, 2013
An animated concept map represents verbal information in a node-link diagram that changes over time. The goals of the experiment were to evaluate the instructional effects of presenting an animated concept map concurrently with semantically equivalent spoken narration. The study used a 2 x 2 factorial design in which an animation factor (animated…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Nesbit, John C.; Anguiano, Carlos J.; Adesope, Olusola O. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
A concept map is a node-link diagram in which each node represents a concept and each link identifies the relationship between the two concepts it connects. We investigated how using concept maps influences learning by synthesizing the results of 142 independent effect sizes (n = 11,814). A random-effects model meta-analysis revealed that learning…

Ardasheva, Yuliya; Wang, Zhe; Roo, Anna Karin; Adesope, Olusola O.; Morrison, Judith A. – Journal of Educational Research, 2018
This experimental study explored the impact of representation + glossary label visuals on science outcomes in a sample of 174 Grade 7 English learners (ELs). Analysis of covariance results indicated that, regardless of English proficiency, ELs in both treatment and control conditions performed similarly on reading comprehension (p = 0.26) and…

Adesope, Olusola O.; Zhou, Mingming; Nesbit, John C. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2015
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether achievement motivations influence the adoption of learning strategies and learning strategies influence studying behavior in an online learning environment. The Goal Orientation Questionnaire was used to measure achievement motives, and the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire was…

Adesope, Olusola O.; Cavagnetto, Andy; Hunsu, Nathaniel J.; Anguiano, Carlos; Lloyd, Joshua – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
This study used a between-subjects experimental design to examine the effects of three different computer-based instructional strategies (concept map, refutation text, and expository scientific text) on science learning. Concept maps are node-link diagrams that show concepts as nodes and relationships among the concepts as labeled links.…

Ma, Wenting; Adesope, Olusola O.; Nesbit, John C.; Liu, Qing – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) are computer programs that model learners' psychological states to provide individualized instruction. They have been developed for diverse subject areas (e.g., algebra, medicine, law, reading) to help learners acquire domain-specific, cognitive and metacognitive knowledge. A meta-analysis was conducted on…

Nesbit, John C.; Adesope, Olusola O. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2011
An animated concept map is a presentation of a network diagram in which nodes and links are sequentially added or modified. An experiment compared learning from animated concept maps and text by randomly assigning 133 undergraduates to study 1 of 4 narrated animations presenting semantically equivalent information accompanied by identical audio…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Adesope, Olusola O.; Gilbert, Rachel Barouch – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2013
Research on the use of software programs and tools such as pedagogical agents has peaked over the last decade. Pedagogical agents are on-screen characters that facilitate instruction. This meta-analysis examined the effect of using pedagogical agents on learning by reviewing 43 studies involving 3,088 participants. Analysis of the results…
