Liew, Tze Wei; Tan, Su-Mae; Seydali, Rouzbeh – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2014
The present study examined the relationship among learners' differences, behaviors in manipulating variables, and learning achievements in a simulation-based program that supports discovery learning in the subject of C-programming algorithm. Participants (n = 66) took the Group Embedded Figures Test, Action Control Scale, and Computer…

Liew, Tze Wei; Tan, Su-Mae; Seydali, Rouzbeh – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2014
In this article, the effects of personalized narration in multimedia learning on learners' computer perceptions and task-related attitudes were examined. Twenty-six field independent and 22 field dependent participants studied the computer-based multimedia lessons on C-Programming, either with personalized narration or non-personalized narration.…

Franklin, Godfrey; And Others – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 1995
Describes a study conducted at the University of West Florida with the Navy that investigated the effects of cooperative tutoring on academic performance. Treatments for the experimental and control groups are described, and performance based on cognitive style as determined by scores from the Group Embedded Figures Test is discussed. (24…

Griffin, Ray; Franklin, Godfrey – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 1996
One hundred and forty-three subjects were identified as Field Independent or Field Dependent based on their performance on the Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT), a measure of cognitive style. Results indicated that Field Independent students performed significantly better on course tests and had higher academic potential, as measured by the ACT,…

Whyte, Michael M.; And Others – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 1991
Describes a study that was conducted to determine whether paired/cooperative computer-assisted instruction (CAI) was as effective as individual instruction. Treatment of experimental and control groups is explained, and the effects of pairings based on cognitive style--i.e., field dependence and field independence--on achievement and student…

Chinien, Chris A.; Boutin, France – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 1993
Reviews the literature on the cognitive style field dependent/field independent (FD/FI) and suggests implications for educational technologists in their efforts to address individual differences among learners during the instructional design process that would narrow the differential learning gain between FD and FI learners. Testing for FD/FI is…

Dwyer, Francis M.; Moore, David M. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 1992
Describes a study of undergraduate students at Pennsylvania State University that was conducted to assess the impact of instructional color coding on visually and verbally oriented tests and on field dependence independence. Use of the GEFT (Group Embedded Figures Test) is discussed, and differences in cognitive processes are considered. (11…
