Baron (2016) Using Embedded Visual Coding to Support Contextualization of Historical Texts

Abstract

This mixed-method study examines the think-aloud protocols of 48 randomly assigned undergraduate students to understand what effect embedding a visual coding system, based on reliable visual cues for establishing historical time period, would have on novice history students' ability to contextualize historic documents. Results indicate that using multiple embedded images per time period significantly improves students' ability to source and contextualize historical sources.
