Abstract

The purposes of this research were to develop and to compare achievement and satisfaction of students in level 4 (Muttayom Suksa 4-6) between Project-Based Learning Management (PBLM) model and conventional learning on Information Technology course. Sampling groups consisted of students who were studying in level 4 (Muttayom Suksa 4-6) from Uttaraditdarunee School in Uttaradit Province and Mattayom-Watnhongjok School in Bangkok Metropolitan area. Then, the students from each school were divided into two groups: an experimental group and a control group. The research tools used in the study were composed of pretest and posttest, a learning management plan, progress assessment, and a questionnaire on students’ learning satisfaction. Statistics utilized for data analysis were mean ( X ), Standard Deviation (S.D.), t-test and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The results of overall study were that when the mean scores of the students’ learning achievement between the PBLM model ( X = 46.80, S.D. = 3.78) and the conventional learning ( X = 46.05, S.D. = 4.66) were compared by using t-test, it was found that there was a significant difference at .05 level. When ANCOVA utilized and pre-test used as a covariance, it was found that teaching models had a direct effect on students’ learning achievement only at Mattayom-Watnhongjok School at 61.20 percent. Then, when the mean of students’ satisfaction were compared, it was found that students’ satisfaction on the PBLM model ( X = 3.81, S.D. = 0.88) and the conventional learning ( X = 3.69, S.D. = 0.88) was at a good level. However, the mean of students’ satisfaction on the PBLM model was higher than the mean of conventional learning.
