The Effects of Interactive iBooks on Advanced Secondary Statistic Students’ Motivation and Academic Achievement
Dr. Vicki-Lynn Holmes
The purpose of this mixed method’s study was to explore the impact (both motivational and academic) of using the media-rich, interactive iBooks in a high school statistics class. The researchers interviewed and observed a unique stats class in which the entire course was taught using an iBooks textbook. These statistic students were assessed at the beginning and end of the term via a national stats content exam and an introductory statistics attitude survey. Preliminary results indicate that high school students show academic growth of key statistical concepts, and that their motivation is directly affected by teacher attributes.
