Abstract

In this experiment more knowledgeable learners who received a set of worked examples aimed at their weak areas for practice (deliberate practice group) outperformed on a final test a group given a choice of their practice problems. This pattern was reversed for less knowledgeable learners. Implications for deliberate practice research as well as the design of worked examples are discussed.
