Abstract

Transfer of learning strategies is generally difficult to achieve because learning contexts are different from practical ones. This study assumes a cognitive process for using strategies in practical contexts. Using the concept of transfer-appropriate processing, the researchers prepared a program of teaching strategies that includes problem-solving contexts. Then, two experiments were performed to compare the effects of two contexts (problem-solving and directed). A total of 140 undergraduate students participated in the experiments which had a 2 (contexts: problem-solving vs. directed) × 3(test: pre, post, and delay) design. The results showed that the mean difference between problem-solving and directed contexts was not significant. This indicates that problem-solving contexts have the same effects as directed contexts. Therefore, the results did not support the hypothesis. Further experiments are needed to confirm the validity of the results.
