An Evaluation of the Instructional Effectiveness of a Computer Lesson in Biomechanics
written by John P. Boysen and Peter Francis
This article describes a study in which one group of undergraduate students were taught a one-hour computerized lesson on free body diagram analysis,developed at Iowa State University for use with the PLATO system. Other students studied the same material using worksheets. Both methods appeared to be equally effective although the computer system offered some instructional advantages.
