Abstract

In this study, the effect of Computer Assisted Experimental Method and Concept Mapping Method on achievement, concept learning, and retention level of lyceé 2 students was investigated at the level of high school physics lessons. These two methods were applied by the same physics teacher and his students while the subjects of Magnetism and Alternating Current Circuits were being taught.

The purpose of this study was to search the effectiveness of using Computer Assisted Experimental Method and Concept Mapping Method in both seperate classes and in the same class on achievement, concept learning and retention level of the students. The difference between the means of the pre-tests and post-test scores, which were obtained from the students were investigated. The significances of the results were considered by using the approppriate statistical methods.

The findings of this study are as follows:

1-It was found that using Computer Assisted Experimental Method while teaching physics has positive and significant effect on students’ achievements.

2- It was found that using Computer Assisted Experimental Method while teaching physics has positive and significanteffect on students concept learning.

3- Computer Assisted Experimental Method increased the level of the retention of the students.
4-The using of the Concept Mapping Method during the physics courses has positive and significant effect on the achievement of the students.

5- The using of the Concept Mapping Method during the physics courses has positive and effect on concept learning.

6- The using of the Concept Mapping Method during the physics courses has positive and significant effect on the level of retention of the students.

Some suggestions about the science/physics teaching methods were brought forward in the light of these results. I hope that this research contributes to the studies done in scienceteaching and gives some useful ideas to the teachers and educators.

Key Words: Computer Assited Instruction, Physics Education, Concept Mapping, Electromagnetism and Alternating Current Circuits.
