Study the Effect of Goal Setting Scaffolding Tool for Problem Solving--In a problem based learning game environment
Abstract: This study proposes to investigate the effects of a goal-setting tool for metacognitive scaffolding during the problem-solving process in a Problem-Based Learning Serious Game environment. The research will employ a parallel mixed design and utilize multiple data sources to answer the following questions: 1) What is the performance difference between students who have access to this tool (experiment group) and students who don’t have access to this tool (control group)? 2) In the experiment group, what is the tool use difference among students based on their performance and goal orientation? 3) What are students’ learning paths based on their performance and goal orientation? 4) Why do students use the tool differently?
