Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project was designed to determine whether there is overall learning from electronic tutoring and which of the two electronic teaching mechanisms (hint messages and worked examples) yields the better result in terms of students learning. We performed a study using the Assistment system and special problems developed for this system. Our participants were 763 students from 8 middle schools in the Worcester, MA area.
