The effect of interactivity within an educational website was examined regarding learning outcomes, website satisfaction, perception of flow and student time on task. The participants consisted of 72 seventh grade students from 5 classrooms. Each participant was randomly assigned to one of three science websites with varying levels of interactivity. When the degree to which the interactive functions were utilized was taken into account, results indicated that interactivity positively influenced learning outcomes, website satisfaction, perception of flow and student time on task. Implications and limitations of these results are discussed regarding the use of interactivity within educational web resources.
