Zirkel, Jessica B.; Zirkel, Perry A.
Educational Technology, v37 n6 p52-56 Nov-Dec 1997
Reviews the limited research on computer software alternatives to actual dissection in biology instruction. Concludes that research should include larger more representative samples; higher priority on psychometrically sound instrumentation; a paper-based comparison group; a design that carefully considers attitude; and practical measures to mitigate or buffer researcher bias.
