Abstract

This study investigated the comparative effects of multiple-choice and short-answer online student question-generation on academic performance and cognitive strategies use. Two 6 th grade classes from one elementary school participated for eight weeks. An online learning system was adopted. Results from the MANCOVAs found that students in the multiple-choice group had significantly elevated scores on higher cognitive levels achievement assessment and elaboration strategy use than those in the short-answer group. No significant difference was found, however, in academic performance assessing lower-cognitive level, or the use of rehearsal or organization strategies. Recommendations for classroom implementation were provided.
