Abstract (summary)

The Advanced Placement (AP) Descriptive Chemistry Website allows students to repeatedly practice chemistry problems. The current study involves the redesign of the AP Descriptive Chemistry Website using worked examples to enhance learner performance. The population sample for the study includes students interested in learning descriptive chemistry materials. Students’ usage patterns with the Website were analyzed to assess learner performance using the Independent Samples t-test. No important differences were found in learning between the worked example and more conventional strategies.
