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 ...
