Abstract : The research was designed to investigate the impact of learner control on performance and anxiety in a computer-assisted instruction task. The research was divided into three phases. The results of Phase 3 are reported. The learning task was the identification of edible plants and their critical features and edible parts. Experimental hypotheses centered on the affective advantages of learner control, personality variables which influence the use of learner control, and the instructional effectiveness of pictorial mediators under learner control. Three experimental groups were used. (Modified author abstract)
