This study continues the work by the authors to investigate the efficacy of homework in an engineering mechanics (Statics & Dynamics) course, starting with data from the fall semester of 2013. Throughout this study we have investigated: hand-written solutions, frequent quizzes based on homework problems, and the Pearson Mastering Engineering software. Thus far variations in homework systems have had only minimal impacts on the student’s overall performance in the class, as assessed by performance on exam scores. In this paper authors will present the impact of utilizing the “adaptive follow-up” modules in Pearson Mastering Engineering, as well as a reflection on the different methods used over the study period.
As in previous years, assessment of the efficacy of homework assignments will be based on observation of students’ performance on exams, and a survey of students’ perceptions relative to historical norms. Institutional review of research protocol determined that full board review of the study and informed consent was not required.
