När och hur bör hjälpmedel användas i datorspel: En kvantitativ experimentell studie på kompetens och bibehållande (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Understanding how tutorials affect games is vital for adequate tutorialization. This study investigates how tutorials affect learning and memory retention within videogames. Two versions of a custom game were designed to gather data from the participants (N = 32). The control group (n = 16) played the game with minimal assistance, while the experimental group (n = 16) had both progressive and adaptive tutorials accessible to them. The results revealed that the experimental group had both higher initial learning and higher memory retention.

Abstract [sv]

Förståelse för hur instruktioner påverkar spel är nödvändigt för att kunna ge bra hjälp. Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur instruktioner i datorspel påverkar inlärning och behållande av information. För studien skapades två separata spel med målsättningen att samla data från deltagarna (N = 32). Kontrollgruppen (n = 16) spelade en version med minimal assistans medan experimentgruppen (n = 16) hade flera typer av progressiva- och adaptiva instruktioner. Resultaten avslöjade att experimentgruppen hade både högre inlärning och bättre bibehållande av kunskap.
