Abstract: A multimedia lesson presenting concurrent on-screen text, still graphics or animations, and narration is a typical setting in redundancy research. Concise redundancy design (CR) is the revision of the on-screen text into a concise form which is presented to the learners with still graphics and narration simultaneously. This type of redundancy has been observed to be beneficial. The present study will investigate the effects of concise redundancy on retention and learner confidence while taking into account the participants’ spatial abilities. Additionally, the effects of still and animated graphics will be factored into the study. At the conclusion of the study, the effects of animated and still graphics, CR, and high/low spatial ability, as they relate to achievement, and level of confidence will be analyzed.
