Veerbeek, Jochanan; Vogelaar, Bart; Verhaegh, Janneke; Resing, Wilma C. M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Task solving processes and changes in these processes have long been expected to provide valuable information about children's performance in school. This article used electronic tangibles (concrete materials that can be physically manipulated) and a dynamic testing format (pretest, training, and posttest) to investigate children's task solving…

Gu, Xiaoqing; Cai, Huiying – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
A semantic diagram tool is proposed in this study in order to structure collaborative problem solving (CPS) based on cognitive load theory (CLT). To investigate its effects on transaction cost and the deepening of user understandings, a comparative quasi-experiment was designed and conducted with 49 participants from a university in East China.…

Lodder, Josje; Heeren, Bastiaan; Jeuring, Johan – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This article describes an experiment with LogEx, an e-learning environment that supports students in learning how to prove the equivalence between two logical formulae, using standard equivalences such as DeMorgan. In the experiment, we compare two groups of students. The first group uses the complete learning environment, including hints, next…

Brasier, Daniel J.; Melville, Michael; Hershock, Chad; Rule, Gordon – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
In this study, we investigated the optimal placement of animations and practice and feedback exercises with respect to each other and to static text and graphics in an online DNA replication module. We randomly assigned students in a first-semester introductory biology course for freshmen biology majors and nonmajors to one of four online modules…

Makransky, Guido; Borre-Gude, Stefan; Mayer, Richard E. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The main objective of this study was to examine the effectiveness of immersive virtual reality (VR) as a medium for delivering laboratory safety training. We specifically compare an immersive VR simulation, a desktop VR simulation, and a conventional safety manual. The sample included 105 first year undergraduate engineering students (56 females).…

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…

Iio, Takamasa; Maeda, Ryota; Ogawa, Kohei; Yoshikawa, Yuichiro; Ishiguro, Hiroshi; Suzuki, Kaori; Aoki, Tomohiro; Maesaki, Miharu; Hama, Mika – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This paper reports how robot-assisted language learning (RALL) impacts Japanese adults' English speaking skills. With existing research on RALL focusing on children, there is little evidence indicating RALL's effects on adults. We developed a RALL system comprising a robot, a tablet, and designed learning materials for speaking practice. To…

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…

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'…
