Abstract

Reasoning-congruent representations help novices learn about the behavior of objects in a domain and provide a more profitable way for students to plan and implement solutions. We describe the use of visual representations in GIL, a tutor for LISP programming, and examine how this system implements the goals of a reasoning-congruent representation.
