Abstract:The study investigated the effect of a varying sequence of correct and incorrect video-based examples on engagement, self-efficacy, emotional reactions to error, error analysis and task performance. In past researches, example design variants such as the type error explanation provided for the erroneous example or the variation in the presentation of examples may have contributed to mixed results of knowledge gains. To understand if the presentation order of examples affects learning, a quantitative research with a pre-test-post-test design was created with two experimental groups (correct-incorrect and incorrect-correct examples), and a control group (correct examples only). Results found in the correct-incorrect group a link between the decrease of negative emotions and the increase of transfer test score, and a link between participants increase of error analytical skill and their higher retention test scores. In all three conditions, participants scored high on video engagement and held increased self‐efficacy beliefs after training. Mixed example conditions did not trigger negative emotional reactions. Both mixed examples conditions were more effective in developing error management skills, but general task performance was equally effective in all three groups. The outcome suggests that there is a potential in using a mix of correct and incorrect procedures to effectively teach software skills, especially when error management information is given.
