We examine whether there are differences between students regarding the utility of learning from visual representations (illustrations or graphs) within the context of a typed natural language-based conceptual physics tutoring system. Showing half of the students only illustrations and the other half only graphs, we found that novices benefited from illustrations, whereas non-novices showed no difference. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
