In the cognitive psychology domain, the memorization of knowledge is one kind of representation of memory capability. Humans often get the knowledge with knowledge-oriented courses. These courses are composed of the question banks with the fixed knowledge-based content. Learners can obtain the required cognitive knowledge through the repeated memory process. This study proposed a proficiency-based learning algorithm to simulate this kind of learning behavior and then implement an instruction-assisted system called proficiency-based adaptive and guided e-learning system (PAGE system), in which learners can study independently through a guided mechanism. The PAGE system is quite suitable for the knowledge-oriented courses, which are designed by several items with standard answers. Obviously the study indicated the PAGE system is validated in the learning process of memorization. The experimental result proved that the PAGE system can help learners to remember efficiently. All participants got positive progress and 80% of them achieved their criterion for cognitive knowledge growth. In addition, the experiment also showed that the learning attitude and active performance are crucial factors that affect learners' learning growth.
