Abstract

This study examines three different instructional approaches used within a multimedia-based learning environment and the impact each have on student learning. This study answered the question, to what extent do different instruction approaches influence student declarative knowledge when assessed on multiple performance measures? Three instructional approaches (directed instruction, structured problem solving, and minimal guidance) were analyzed in this study. No one instructional strategy produced higher mean scores for both the selected-response and written response tests. On the selected-response test the directed instructional approach produced a highest mean score. On the written response test the structured problem solving approach produced a highest mean score. For both tests, students receiving minimally guided instruction have the lowest scores among all instructional strategies.
