Abstract (summary)

Worked examples have been effective in enhancing learning outcomes, especially with novice learners. Most of this research has been conducted in laboratory settings. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of embedding elaborated worked example modeling in a computer simulation practice activity, within a classroom environment. The benefits derived from this study are the acquisition of empirical data that helps determine the value of embedding elaborated worked example modeling as a learning support within computer simulation activities. The data also help to determine if this is a valuable enhancement of the active learning provided by interactive computer simulations, which have already been proven effective in increasing academic achievement.
