Abstract

Is it possible to teach a learner to become a better question asker in as little as 25 minutes? Given that many teachers and school districts do not have the resources to provide individualized question training to students, the current study sought to explore the benefits of using animated pedagogical agents to teach question asking skills in a relatively short amount of time (approximately 25 minutes). Results revealed a significant difference in the quality of questions generated on the posttest as a function of condition. Additionally, results revealed a significant interaction between prior knowledge and question training on the posttest scores.
