Abstract: Participants learned to categorize and solve probability word problems by studying worked examples and solving practice problems. The examples and problems were ordered according to either a blocked (sequential examples of the same problem category) or mixed (intermixed examples of different problem categories) schedule. Preliminary results suggest that when categorizing problems the blocked schedule might facilitate immediate performance, whereas the mixed schedule might facilitate delayed performance.
