This suggests that implementation of a general metacognitive problem-solving strategy during electrical circuit theory instruction will have little effect on students who possess knowledge of algebraic principles.
Reviewers were asked to determine if the lesson plan was typical of an electrical circuit theory lesson, the test measured what was being taught in the lesson plan, the test items were at a median level of difficulty, 3 minutes was an appropriate time limit to solve the problems, and the items would be clear and unambiguous for students.
The difference in electrical circuit theory test scores between the control group and experimental group was statistically significant (t (62) = 1.96, p = .027).
The textbook for engineering students provides the fundamentals of electrical circuit theory
, covering such basic topics as resistance, capacitance and inductance.
