Example-rule coordination refers to a class of instructional methods that involve combining instructional examples with other forms of instruction including self-explanation, problem-solving practice, analogical comparison. Coordination support may occur through explicit prompting for self-explanations, interleaving worked examples and problems, fading assistance from worked examples to problems.

Studies exploring various forms of example-rule coordination include: Butcher's hint contiguity in Geometry, Booth's corrective self-explanation in Algebra, McLaren's worked example interleaving in Chemistry, Eskenazi's vocabulary example personalization in English, Ringenberg's example-based help in Physics, Anthony's worked example interleaving in Algebra, Noke's analogical comparison of examples in Physics, Renkl's example fading in Geometry.
