Concept mapping as evaluating tool for eliciting understanding of science

Students understanding of science has always been of considerable importance in the area of science education research at school level. It tries to focus on issues such as tools to aid understanding, conceptual understanding, tools for evaluating understanding, individual knowledge structure of students so on and so forth. Concept map is one such tool that is used to elicit understanding the subject thoroughly as well evaluating knowledge and teaching- learning process success in a given domain. Concept maps are two- dimensional hierarchical and node-like diagrams that depict knowledge.

Effectiveness of Computer Based Instruction (CBI) on Achievement in Mathematics of Secondary School Students

This study attempted to find the effect of Computer Based Instruction (CBI) on achievement in mathematics of secondary school students. An experimental study was conducted using two equivalent group design among IX standard students in R.A.N. Matriculation school, Kavarapetti, Thiruvallur district, Tamilnadu, India. The sample was divided into two groups, each consisting of 35 students. The effectiveness of CBI was measured using gain scores (difference between pre-test Post-test scores) of both the groups.


This study attempts to develop the learning of Bloom's taxonomy among B.Ed students using CAI package. An experimental study was conducted among B.Ed trainees to find out the effectiveness of the CAI package, at Suraj College of Education, Melathangal, Tamilnadu, India which was considered taken as the sample for the study. The sample was divided into two groups consisting of 35 students in each group. The study results revealed that experimental group and control group students did not differ in their pre-test scores , which was measured using achievement test.
