Abstract

This project focuses on one main goal: to examine the data collected from my study to determine the best way for students to learn. Another goal is to decide a suitable number of skill-master problems before a questionnaire for a skill-builder, which requires student to get three problems right in a row. Each set is created with three separated sectionsto which students were assigned: five, seven or nine skill-master problems before the same questionnaire problem. A study was then conducted with the goal of finding a suitable number of skill-master problems to help students master a skill. Analysis from the collected data suggests that ten is a good number of problems to determine that students need a different type of help to succeed.
