Learning beyond Accuracy: Evidence for Worked Examples as a Support for Students' Proportional Reasoning Gains

Elayne Patrice Vollman
A series of studies examined the cognitive underpinnings of worked examples as a tool for introducing multiple solution strategies for the same concept, here proportional reasoning, and for supporting complex higher order thinking. Worked examples were also tested as a tool to protect against temporarily strained cognitive resources (i.e., high pressure contexts), and resultant student solutions were explored in detail to understand affordances and limits in problem solving based on worked examples. Specifically, across this...
