This presentation discusses the instructional design implications of animation induced illusion of understanding, a phenomenon that was demonstrated in a randomized, double-blind experiment that compared the instructional efficacy of static images and representational animation. Among low proficient learners, animation learners (a) found the instruction easier to understanding and (b) developed more optimistic self-assessments than static image learners. However, animation learners performed more poorly on a learning outcome measure (transfer test) than static image learners. Therefore, the instructional format that low proficient learners thought was easier to understand and from which they believed they had learned more was, in actuality, instructionally inferior.
