A Comparison of Two Approaches to Teaching Orthographic Projection at the College Level.
Papp, Alexander George
The purpose of this study was to ascertain whether or not the whole method or the part method of solving orthographic projection problems made any significant difference in student performance scores, and more specifically, to ascertain the relative effectiveness of these two approaches on seven criterion variables. The research design was quasi-experimental: two laboratory instructors each taught an experimental and a control group in engineering drawing, with all groups utilizing identical laboratory problems, homework assignments and attending the same weekly lecture for 4 weeks. It was concluded that no significant difference was demonstrated by either of the two instructional approaches in achievement, ability to solve graphic problems, ability to understand technical information, ability to understand spatial relations, or in influencing student attitude toward the course. This D. Ed. Dissertation was submitted to The University of Missouri. (GR)
