Samenvatting

Current theories of leaming consider the restructuring of the components of a weak problem solving sequence into a domain-specific procedure to be the fundamental leaming mechanism in complex knowledge domains. Within the context of cognitive load theory, there is growing evidence that applying weak methods such as means-ends analysis, do not necessarily result in learning, but can in fact induce a high mental load which prevents the problem solver inducing domain-specific mies. The major goal of this article is to provide a direct test of the cognitive load theory. Experimental evidence was found that the cognitive load imposed by a weak problem solving activity can retard the acquisition of a problem-solving skii!.
