The problem this study is addressing is that in the physics classroom of a suburban high school, the teacher has access to enough laptop computers for every student to be able to use one, but does not use them because he does not know how to incorporate them into instruction or if they will be helpful in increasing learning. The purpose of this study is to find out if incorporating the laptops in a one to one computer based instruction will increase student achievement and motivation. The following questions and hypotheses were posed earlier in the study.
Q1: What effect will one to one laptop based instruction have on the achievement of the 11th and 12th grade physics students?
Q2: What effect will one to one laptop based instruction have on the motivation of the 11th and 12th grade physics students?
Ho1 : One to one laptop based instruction will have no effect on the achievement of 11th- 12th grade physics students.
HA1: One to one laptop based instruction will increase the achievement of 11th- 12th grade physics students.
Ho2:One to one laptop based instruction will have no effect on the motivation of 11th- 12th grade physics students
HA2:One to one laptop based instruction will increase the motivation of 11th- 12th grade physics students. This chapter presents the methodology employed to answer these questions and test the hypotheses. First, the research method and design are described. Then, the participants in the study and the data collection instruments are…
