Lee, Zeng-Han
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of North Texas
The current supplementary web based English learning in Taiwan provides online learning resources and gives assessments at the end of each lesson to evaluate learners' online learning results. Based on the testing results, instructors may adjust their in-class instructional method to focus on the students' weaknesses. For the average classroom size of 40 students with one instructor, it is extremely difficult to provide individual learning content for each learner's needs because each student has his or her own weaknesses. This study conducted the situated environment with Vygotsky's dynamic assessment theory to test learner's learning achievements and satisfactions as compared to the current web learning environment. . Doctor of Philosophy (Educational Computing), May 2010, 98 pp., 19 tables, 8 illustrations, references, 91 titles. The study finds that when both groups of Taiwanese students used Internet based learning, those that utilized the situated and dynamic learning assessment environment showed a statistically significant higher achievement score than those using only the current online learning environment (p less than 0.01). In addition, learners in the SDLA environment had statistically significant higher satisfaction scores than those in the current web learning environment.
