To Investigate The Effectiveness Of Computer Simulation Versus Laboratory Experience, And The Sequencing Of Instruction, In Teaching Logic Circuits , Anuradha Ashok Gokhale

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The study investigated the effectiveness of computer-based simulation versus laboratory experience, and the sequencing of instruction, in teaching logic circuits. The two independent variables in this study were: (1) method of instruction, a nominal variable with two categories (computer-based simulation and laboratory experience); and (2) sequencing of instruction, a nominal variable with two categories (reading following lab or simulation experience and reading prior to lab or simulation experience). The dependent variable was the posttest score;A 2 x 2 factorial design was used in this study. The data were analyzed using the analysis of variance procedure. It was found that ...


The Effectiveness Of Computer Simulation In Training Programmers For Computer Numerical Control Machining , Yen-Fei Hwang Jan 1989

The Effectiveness Of Computer Simulation In Training Programmers For Computer Numerical Control Machining , Yen-Fei Hwang

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of microcomputer simulation, and to compare the differences in skill mastery and in the need for a teacher's assistance among students using a microcomputer with a partner, using a microcomputer alone, and those who did not use a microcomputer simulator in learning CNC programming skills;A pretest-posttest control group design was used in this study. All of the students obtaining scores in pretest were taken out from the research to assure the homogeneity of the subjects;A total of ninety students was randomly selected from five classes in National ...

Development Of A Chinese Computer-Assisted Video Instruction System , Jia-Rong Jerome Wen

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This research was designed to develop and investigate a Chinese interactive video instructional system with the use of a microcomputer. Studies in Taiwan have indicated that several major problems confront the teacher who attempts to design CAI courseware. The major difficulties are the need for Chinese input/output and the lack of authoring tools. Hence, the purpose of this project has been devoted to explore a model for using interactive video in education in Taiwan;The major task of this study was to develop the Chinese Interactive Video System (CIVS), a computer assisted video learning environment with Chinese characters display ...


Principles Of Technology: A Summative Evaluation Of Student Achievement In The First Year , Dolores Hall Jan 1989

Principles Of Technology: A Summative Evaluation Of Student Achievement In The First Year , Dolores Hall

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This study presents the findings of a state-wide study of vocational high school students enrolled in the first year Principles of Technology curriculum in public high schools in the state of Iowa during the 1987-1988 school year. Six hundred sixty-seven subjects were involved in the assessment of how well the Principles of Technology objectives were being met in the state;Five research questions and one statistical hypothesis were investigated. Additionally, several student characteristics (gender, grade level (junior, senior), and school enrollment size (small, medium, large) were investigated to determine whether these variables had a significant impact on the adjusted posttest ...


Foreign Students' Perceptions Of The Relevance And Expectations Of Their Education In Us Universities In Terms Of The Technical Development In Their Home Countries , Morteza Sadat-Hossieny Jan 1989

Foreign Students' Perceptions Of The Relevance And Expectations Of Their Education In Us Universities In Terms Of The Technical Development In Their Home Countries , Morteza Sadat-Hossieny

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The purposes of this study were to: (1) assess the extent to which international students studying technical related programs perceived and expected their training to help prepare them for their role in the industrial development of their home countries, (2) identify appropriate course work and practical work experiences that would be recommended by the foreign students to improve their technical programs in the United States;A questionnaire was used in collecting data from 432 subjects enrolled in spring of 1989 in the three Iowa regents universities. Completed questionnaires were received from 179 students resulting in a 41.5 percent return ...
