TITLE: Models of Learning Progress in Solving Complex Problems: Expertise Development in Teaching and Learning
DESCRIPTION: This study proposes that learning is a process of transitioning from one stage to another stage within a knowledge base that features concepts and relations. Drawing on the theories of expertise, this study explored two different models of learning progress (i.e., three- and two-stage models) in the context of classroom learning and identified a model that was a good fit to the data. Participants in this investigation included 136 students and 7 professors from six different universities in the United States. In order to detect and validate stages of learning progress in participants written responses to an ill-structured and complex problem scenario, this study utilized Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and the Continuous Log-Linear Cognitive Diagnostic.
