Examining the Effects of Notetaking Format on Achievement When Students Construct and Study Computerized Notes
Learning Assistance Review Volume 6, Number 1, ISSN 1087-0059
Describes two experiments conducted to investigate the effects of notetaking format on achievement. Students constructed and studied different types of notes: partial (framework and partial notes), skeletal (framework with no notes), and control (no framework and no notes). Found that, based on an application test, students who completed and studied partial notes significantly outperformed those in the control groups. Knowledge map and student survey are appended.
