Exploring the Benefits of Erroneous Example Learning

I worked on the AdaptErrEx project at Carnegie Mellon's Human-Computer Interaction Institute as a Research Intern during the summer of 2011. The study explored the benefits of erroneous examples in teaching middle-school students decimal math. My task for the summer was to redesign the team's existing web tutor interface and make it easier to use and understand. I worked on improving the study's web-based tutor interfaces, and ran a pilot study of the interfaces with middle-school students. Then I implemented the new interfaces in Adobe Flash and ActionScript.
