Özet

The purposes of this study are to develop a computer-assisted instructional material, which involves animations, virtual lab and educational computer applications, based on 7E learning model towards the methods of Mohr and Volhard in the unit "precipitation titrations" delivered in some quantification chemistry courses and to identify the effects of this material on student achievement. The study employs the design of quasi-experimental with control and experiment groups to which pre- and post-test were administered. The participants of the study includes 89 vocational high school students. The data were collected through the administration of the test which was used as both pre- and post-test. The Cronbach alpha coefficient of the achievement test was found to be 0.756. The findings obtained were analysed through t-tests. The findings indicate that post-test scores of experiment group and control group on the achievement test were statistically significant different. This difference indicates that the software has positive effects on student achievement.
