Cognitive learning outcomes of an instructional Microcomputer Game

Auther : Abdullah Shaban - Marv Westrom

Cognitive learning outcomes (achievement: Concepts, Rules, Procedures) of an instructional microcomputer game called Mission: Algebra and the relationship between these outcomes and the intrinsic motivational effects (Challenge, Curiosity, Control, and Fantasy) of the game are examined. There was no difference between achievement and retention scores of students playing the instructional game and those learning through high-intensity worksheet sessions, but boys scored higher than girls on both tests. There was significant interaction between gender and Perceived Creativity on the concept part of the achievement test and all three parts of the retention test. Concept achievement was positively correlated with both Challenge and Control. Rule achievement was positively correlated with both Control and Fantasy. Results indicate that overall motivation can be manipulated sequentially by its factors. Motivation can be instilled and sustained by having factors overlay; appealing first to Curiosity, then to Challenge, and finally to Control.
