Cognitive load theory has been designed to provide guidelines intended to assist in the presentation of information in a manner that encourages learner activities that optimize intellectual…
Training strategies for attaining transfer of problem-solving skill in statistics: A cognitive-load approach.
- F. Paas
Studied the differential effect on training performance, transfer performance, and cognitive load for 3 computer-based training strategies. The conventional, worked, and completion conditions…
Cognitive Load Measurement as a Means to Advance Cognitive Load Theory
In this article, we discuss cognitive load measurement techniques with regard to their contribution to cognitive load theory (CLT). CLT is concerned with the design of instructional methods that…
Cognitive Load Theory and Instructional Design: Recent Developments
Cognitive load theory (CLT) is a major theory providing a framework for investigations into cognitive processes and instructional design, and by simultaneously considering the structure of information and the cognitive architecture that allows learners to process that information, cognitive load theorists have been able to generate a unique variety of new and sometimes counterintuitive instructional designs and procedures.
Instructional Efficiency: Revisiting the Original Construct in Educational Research
This article revisits Paas and Van Merriënboer's (1993) measure of instructional efficiency, which can be applied by educational researchers to compare the effects of different instructional…
Cognitive Load Theory: Instructional Implications of the Interaction between Information Structures and Cognitive Architecture
The basics of cognitive load theory are described, the origins of the instructional implications are sketched, the articles accepted for this special issue as a representative sample of current research in this area are introduced, and the overall results in the context of the theory are discussed.

A ten-item instrument for the measurement of the three types of cognitive load is presented and a three-component solution is revealed, consistent with the types of load that the different items were intended to measure.
Cognitive Architecture and Instructional Design: 20 Years Later
Cognitive load theory was introduced in the 1980s as an instructional design theory based on several uncontroversial aspects of human cognitive architecture. Our knowledge of many of the…
