Computer Software in the Undergraduate Political Science Classroom.
This paper reports on student reaction to the use of computer programs in political science courses during 1991-1995 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The courses were junior-senior level courses, except for the honors section. Three types of software were used: (1) simulations; (2) Internet materials; and (3) data processing software which produced cross tabulation tables. Specific examples of the software are discussed with usages explained. A questionnaire was used to gather student reactions toward computer software. Students tended to be positive toward computer use. Charts, graphs, specific student comments, and a sample of the questionnaire are included in the paper. (EH)
