Many studies have shown that animation performed better than static images. However, the research into the effectiveness of animation has varied with inconsistent results showing no difference in both formats. This suggests that the research on the use of animation is still inconclusive, as animation does not necessarily facilitate comprehension. The previous studies are based on performance do not directly assess actual cognitive food. This study measured cognitive load induced by animation and static images considering individual difference in visual span to explain in-consistency of previous result. Three independent variables were maniputated in the study; information fotmat, task type and individual difference of visual span to measure cognitive load and comprehension. The results showed that the static images induced higher cognitive load than animation. The empirical account of cognitive load will help designers to use these formats more effectively.This experiment will measure the cognitive load for animation and static images using secondary task measurement technique. First, Corsi ... Benefits: In this experiment you will learn about how car engine works and how diesel engine works.
