Effects of Computer Simulations on the Achievement and Acquisition of Computer Skills in Computer Science by Secondary School Students

Master's Thesis from the year 2021 in the subject Didactics - Computer Science, grade: 5.00, Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, course: education - computer option, language: English, abstract: This study investigated the effect of computer simulations on the achievement and acquisition of computer skills in computer science by secondary school students (government owned single sexed schools). It was a quasi-experimental design research. A sample of four schools consisting of two hundred and thirty five (235) senior secondary one (SS 1) students from Awka South L.G.A of Anambra state were selected using purposive sampling technique. The study was guided by four research questions and four null hypothesis tested at 0.05 level of significance. Two research instruments, namely the Computer Achievement Test (CAT) and the Computer Practical Skill Acquisition Test (COMPSAT), which have a reliability of 0.69 and 0.60, using Kuder Richardson formula 20 (KR-20), were used to collect data for the study. The mean and standard deviation statistics were used to answer the research question, while the ANCOVA and Z-test was used to test the hypothesis.
