Description:

We demonstrate learning and problem-solving transfer within the web-based homework tutor MasteringPhysics by considering time to completion, the number of hints requested, and the number of incorrect responses given. The group of students who were prepared by a prior related problem solves a related follow-up problem in ~14% less time on average compared to an unprepared group on that problem. Furthermore, the prepared group requests ~15% fewer hints and makes about ~11% fewer errors on average than the unprepared group.
