Adapting differentiated cognitive load measurement in physics classroom
written by Xian Wu and Diego Valente
Cognitive Load Theory is a very influential framework in educational psychology. There have been numerous efforts recently to develop and implement a differentiated way to measure the three major independent aspects of cognitive load, namely intrinsic, extraneous, and germane cognitive load to gain insight on how students learn from educational interventions. This study adapts a validated self-reported questionnaire to measure the three aspects of cognitive load on students completing administered in-class tutorials. It verifies the feasibility of such a measurement strategy in an authentic educational context. Collected data shows the adapted questionnaire measures intrinsic and extraneous cognitive load adequately. Further polishing is needed for the items addressing germane cognitive load.
