The Effects of Teaching Numerical Control Concepts Via Simulator Versus Non-Simulator Activities on the Achievement, Programming Proficiency and Attitude of High School Students.
Pine, Douglas Taylor
This study utilized 120 metalworking students and six teachers from Columbus, Ohio area high schools to ascertain the effects of teaching numerical control to industrial arts students by means of simulator-aided activities versus nonsimulator aided activities. Scores obtained from an achievement test, attitude inventory, and word address programing problem supplied the data. Conclusive findings from statistical analysis revealed that there is no significant difference in the effect of the two types of teaching methods on student achievement, program writing proficiency, and attitudes. However, within levels of the treatment variable, student achievement, program writing proficiency, and attitude are influenced by differential effects at the teacher level. (SN)
