Class Performance/Engagement Results

HP Tablet Project

The active participation and engagement in redesigned courses were measured through frequency of timely submission of assignments, students' attendance record, lab experiment completion time, and participation grade. As shown in the results, use of tablets in both classroom and laboratory significantly improved student participation and rate of assignment completion/submission. During laboratory experiments students had access to the classroom material for reference, which significantly reduced the time spent in completion of labs. Also after use of mobile technology in redesigned courses, the course grade distribution improved significantly compared to previous semesters when mobile technology was not used.
