  1. Encountering the expertise reversal effect with a computer-based environment on electrical circuit analysis

    Jana Reisslein, Robert K. Atkinson, Patrick Seeling & Martin Reisslein

    This study examined the effectiveness of a computer-based environment employing three example-based instructional procedures (example–problem, problem–example, and fading) to teach series and... More

    pp. 92-103

  2. Can learning from molar and modular worked examples be enhanced by providing instructional explanations and prompting self-explanations?

    Peter Gerjets, Katharina Scheiter & Richard Catrambone

    In two experiments we explored how learning from traditional molar worked-out examples—focusing on problem categories and their associated overall solution procedures—as well as from more efficient... More

    pp. 104-121

  3. Effects of multiple solution methods in mathematics learning

    Cornelia S. Große & Alexander Renkl

    Most mathematical problems can be solved using different methods. We tested the effectiveness of presenting more than one solution method by means of worked-out examples. In Experiment 1, a 2×3... More

  4. Acquisition of procedures: The effects of example elaborations and active learning exercises

    Richard Catrambone & Mashiho Yuasa

    This study explored the effects of active learning and types of elaboration on procedure acquisition (writing database queries). Training materials emphasized elaborations of conditions for... More

  5. Effects of process-oriented worked examples on troubleshooting transfer performance

    Tamara van Gog, Fred Paas & Jeroen J.G. van Merriënboer

    In the domain of electrical circuits troubleshooting, a full factorial experiment investigated the hypotheses that (a) studying worked examples would lead to better transfer performance than... More
