Rueter, John G.; Perrin, Nancy A.
American Biology Teacher, v61 n2 p116-23 Feb 1999
Reports on research that tested the effect of using a computer simulation to teach the concept of a food web to nonbiology majors in a large introductory course. Concludes that the use of the simulation resulted in significantly better performance on an open-ended essay question for those students who used the software, particularly for average students.
