Analysis of results from teaching experimental courses with design and economic principles Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • The results for the statistical analysis of the data collected from a multiyear project funded by the National Science Foundations are presented. This project was conducted to determine the performance of engineering students in a core of four of integrated engineering courses at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Virginia Polytechnic Institute. The results indicated that the cumulative grade point average and SAT math scores significantly affected the final examination scores at both institutions. A comparison between experimental and traditional courses was conducted. The results show that students who participated in the experimental sections performed well as students in the traditional sections.
