The purpose of this study was to investigate the interaction among learning material mode, test mode, and learner cognitive mode. Cognitive mode was examined by “Thinking-Artistic cognitive mode”. The manipulated experimental factors were as follows: (1) learning material mode. sentence and picture; (2) test mode: sentence and picture; (3) thinking cognitive mode: high and low; and (4) artistic cognitive mode: high and low. Four-way ANOVA were conducted on test scores. The results showed a significant interaction between learning material mode and thinking cognitive mode that revealed the superior performance of high thinking cognitive mode group over low thinking cognitive mode group in sentence material; and it also showed a significant interaction between learning material mode and test mode which revealed correspondence effects between learning material mode and test mode on a test performance.
