  • Augmented reality (AR)-based learning environments are argued to foster cognitive and
    emotional involvement. Immersion has been identified as one of the driving forces that promote
    learning in technology-based learning environments. This study evaluated the learning effectiveness
    and immersion appeal of an AR-marker-based learning activity targeted at practicing basic chemistry
    concepts. Data were collected from a cohort of 124 middle school students in Mexico and analyzed
    using pretest–posttest comparisons and cluster analysis. The results suggest that students with
    higher immersive learning profiles achieve better learning outcomes compared with those with lower
    immersive profiles.
