چکیده

هدف اصلی این پژوهش، بررسی تأثیر نرم‌افزار آموزشی میشا و کوشا بر انگیزه پیشرفت و پیشرفت تحصیلی درس علوم تجربی دانش‌آموزان پسر پایه پنجم مقطع ابتدایی شهرستان بیرجند بود. پژوهش حاضر شبه آزمایشی با طرح پیش‌آزمون ـ پس‌آزمون با گروه کنترل است. جامعه آماری کلیه دانش‌آموزان پسر پایه پنجم مقطع ابتدایی شهرستان بیرجند در سال تحصیلی 92 – 1391 بود. از میان آنها تعداد 50 نفر به شیوه تصادفی خوشه‌ای انتخاب شدند. یک گروه (25 نفر) به عنوان گروه آزمایش و گروه دیگر (25 نفر) به عنوان گروه گواه در نظر گرفته شد. در گروه آزمایش، از آموزش نرم‌افزاری به مدت دو ماه و در گروه گواه از آموزش معمول کلاسی استفاده شد. برای گردآوری اطلاعات از پرسش‌نامه انگیزه پیشرفت برنارد واینر با ضریب پایایی 72/0 و آزمون‌های پیشرفت تحصیلی محقق‌ساخته استفاده شد. به منظور تعیین پایایی آزمون‌های پیشرفت تحصیلی، ضریب آلفای کرونباخ محاسبه شد که 75/0 برای پیش‌آزمون و 71/0 برای پس‌آزمون به دست آمد. داده‌ها با روش تحلیل کواریانس تجزیه و تحلیل شد. نتایج این پژوهش نشان داد که نرم‌افزار آموزشی میشا و کوشا بر انگیزه پیشرفت و پیشرفت تحصیلی درس علوم تجربی دانش‌آموزان پسر پایه پنجم مقطع ابتدایی تأثیر مثبت دارد ( 001/0 > P).

چکیده [English]

The main objective of the research was to investigate the effect of educational software "Misha and Koosha" on achievement motivation and academic achievement in science course of fifth grade boys elementary students in the city of Birjand. This research was quasi-experimental study with a pretest - posttest design with a control group. The statistical population was all the fifth grade male students of elementary schools in the city of Birjand in the academic year 2012-13, among which 50 students were selected by random cluster sampling method. One group (n = 25) was selected as the experimental group and the other group (n = 25) as the control group. In the experimental group, the software training and in the control group, the general classroom education was used for two months. To collect data, Bernard Weiner motivation questionnaire (with reliability of 0.72) and researcher made tests of academic achievement used. Cronbach Alpha Coefficient was used to determine the reliability of the academic achievement tests that obtained 0.75 for the pre-test and 0.71 for the post-test. The data were analyzed with covariance analysis. The results showed that the "Misha and Koosha" educational software had a positive effect on achievement motivation and academic achievement of science course in fifth grade boys elementary students (P>0.001).
