Teaching For Transfer Of Assembly Language Concepts To C Programming Using Computer-Based Instruction And Traditional Instruction , Hsiu-Mei Lin

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The aim of teaching assembly language in a computer application course is to introduce students to abstract concepts before delving into programming details. For a novice, it is difficult to understand and learn assembly language in a short amount of time. Hence, the use of a series of computer-based programs may be helpful. Based on this perspective, a computer-based assembly language program LEARNIT was designed to establish a meaningful introduction for students to programming;The purpose of this study was twofold: (1) to evaluate the effectiveness of using computer-based instruction in learning assembly language at the undergraduate level and (2 ...

A Comparison Of Achievement Resulting From Learning Electronics Concepts By Computer Simulation Versus Traditional Laboratory Instruction , Saeid Moslehpour

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This study was designed to compare student achievement resulting from learning electronics concepts by computer simulation versus traditional laboratory instruction (manipulating actual components). The purpose of this study was to enhance the student knowledge about passive-devices electronics circuitry. Two groups of college students participated in this study over an academic year;The review of literature indicated three types of results from the computer simulation and its effects on students: (1) positive effect; (2) negative effect; (3) no effect. The majority of researches indicated that computer simulation enhances the student knowledge of the subject matter;Pretests were given to both groups ...
