.....The aim of this study is to explore whether presentation format and prior knowledge affect the effectiveness of worked examples. The experiment was conducted through a specially designed online instrument. A 2X4 factorial before-and-after design was conducted. Two-way ANCOVA and dependent t test were employed for data analysis. The study provided some direction for improving the quality of initial instruments for further studies.
