This experimental study investigated the effects of computer-based Chinese character illustration modalities and practice strategies on the learning of Chinese characters.A 3 x 2 x 2 mixed model factorial design was created by crossing three levels of Chinese character illustration modality with two levels of writing practice strategy and two levels of recognition practice strategy. The dependent variables included students’ scores on the immediate and the delayed Chinese character recognition tests. Participants were 150 undergraduate students from a major southwestern university. The ANOVA results showed significant main effects for the illustration modality and the writing practice strategy on students’ achievements in the Chinese character recognition tests. This study provides significant implications for instructional designers and Chinese language practitioners.
