The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of three different formats of instructional multimedia presentations on the recall and problem-solving performance of novice-level learners. In this study, participants were randomly assigned to view computer:-based presentations covering two topics. Participants receiving the wordsbefore- pictures treatments viewed programs containing narration followed by animation; participants receiving the pictures-before-words treatments viewed programs containing animation followed by narration; participants receiving the words-with-pictures treatments viewed programs containing animation and narration, simultaneously.
Recall and problem-solving tests were administered immediately following the treatments to measure recall and problem-solving performance. There were no significant differences among the three treatment groups. Further investigation also revealed that participants taking the recall test first scored higher in recall than participants taking the problem-solving test first.
