Abstract

There were three main goals for this project. The first was to develop content for the ASSISTment system based on the Connected Mathematics Project series of textbooks. The second goal was to convert this into a study to determine whether worked examples are more effective than hints for helping students learn in a computer tutoring environment. Data analysis suggests that worked examples were more beneficial for learning than hints. The third goal was to develop an ASSISTment support website.
