To prevent the user from over-relying on technology support, the researcher proposed a 3-D contingent scaffolding model to systematically vary the technology support in response to the learner's performance in a learning task consisting of a sequence of sub-tasks. The research reports on the implementation of this model in a computer-based instructional program on a topic in statistics and a study of its effectiveness with college students. In this study, the 3-D contingent scaffolding model… CONTINUE READING
