Abstract

This paper investigates the effectiveness of including questions within instructional multimedia content to improve student performance on a related programming assignment. An experiment was conducted where one set of students was provided with an instructional video without any embedded questions and another set of students was provided the same video with embedded questions. The findings of this paper demonstrate that the technique of embedding questions showed promise in improving student performance on a programming assignment.
