1. Liang, Jie. STUDY OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A WEB-BASED INTERACTIVE HOMEWORK.

Degree: MS, Physics and Astronomy, 2002, Mississippi State University

With increased use of the web in teaching there is growing interest in the effectiveness of web-based tools in facilitating student learning. I have conducted a case study on the effectiveness of web-based tutorial alternative. I designed a web-based homework tutorial about two-dimensional kinematics and conducted two experiments to evaluate its effectiveness. The evaluation focused on student?s performance and attitude. In Experiment 1, the experimental group and control group worked with the interactive web-based and regular homework respectively. Both groups worked at home. In Experiment 2, the experimental group worked with the interactive web-based homework used in Experiment 1 in a lab setting. The control group in Experiment 2 worked on the same homework problems as the control group of Experiment 1 but via computer in a lab. The evaluation indicated that the interactive web-based homework could be considered as an alternative to the general homework. Moreover it appeared to strengthen attitudes and encourage more students to complete the assignment. Advisors/Committee Members: Taha Mzoughi (chair), John T.

2. Li, Qiaowu. EXAMINING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INTERACTIVITY IN A 3-DIMENTIONAL WEB-BASED TUTORIAL ON INTERFERENCE PHENOMENON.

Degree: MS, Physics and Astronomy, 2002, Mississippi State University

In recent years there has been an increased interest on the role of web-based simulations in student learning. I have conducted a preliminary study on the effectiveness of interactivity in 3-Dimensional simulations to help students learn the interference phenomenon. The study was based on a Pretest-Posttest design with the experimental and control groups completing different but equivalent web-based tutorials. The experimental tutorial was based on the use of highly interactive 3-dimentional simulations developed by the WebTOP project. The only difference between the control tutorial and the experimental tutorial is that the control tutorial used static images instead of simulations. The content of both tutorials addressed the common misconceptions students usually have about waves and interference as identified in previous physics education research. The results suggest that student learning from both tutorials was significant with no significant difference in learning between the two groups. The study also identified several factors that might have affected the results and that should be the subject of further study. Advisors/Committee Members: Jeff A. Winger (committee member), Robert K. Atkinson (committee member), Taha Mzoughi (chair), John T. Foley (committee member).
