Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The Motorola MC68HC11 microcontroller is one of the semiconductor achievements that offers various facilities in microprocessor control applications with no need for excessive external support in hardwares. This new product provides the flexibility, efficiency, economy, and simplicity for the designing job of the microprocessor control applications. This study was conducted to improve the current microprocessor teaching materials which are mostly out-of-date and expensive in conducting lab experiments, and to determine the relative effectiveness of the new microprocessor teaching materials. A set of seven explanatory lab experiments were designed and developed on the Motorola MC68HC11 microcontroller EVB (Evaluation Board), and students ...

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This study was designed to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of computer simulated laboratory instruction versus traditional laboratory instruction (utilizing actual electronics components) for educating college students about solid state electronics circuitry. The study also examined the students' attitude toward computer simulated laboratory instruction versus traditional laboratory instruction as a means of conducting laboratory activities;A pretest-posttest control group design was used in this experiment. In this study, the researcher randomly assigned subjects to particular groups. The experimental group received the pretests, experimental treatment, posttest I, traditional treatment, posttest II, and the posttests, while the control group received the pretests ...
