Abstract: Graph construction and interpretation are critical 21st-century skills. In this study we investigate how 8th grade students construct graphs in the context of a week-long online curriculum unit that links dynamic visualizations to graphical data. We test two forms of visualization: dual animation depicting both the student's graph and the correct graph in terms of a narrative context and single animation depicting only the student's graph. Quantitative results indicate that both forms of animation supported understanding, but dual animation facilitated construction of more accurate graphs earlier in the unit. Case studies reveal unique graphing patterns associated with each form of animation.
