Abstract: This research investigates two ways to encourage revision of scientific essays an online genetics unit. Revising is difficult for students, due partly to lack of practice and guidance. We examine the effects of two activities designed to support gaining ideas from evidence by comparing an essay annotator activity that models the essay revision process (text) to an activity in which students annotate screenshots of interactive models from the unit (model). All students improved in their ability to revise, but low prior knowledge students benefited more from the text annotator condition.
