Development and Evaluation of Power Steering System Trainer

Publisher: Bicol University

Automotive students may be able to understand the lessons more efficiently with the use of functional instructional materials. However, such instructional materials are not readily available in educational institutions. This problem is common not only in state universities and colleges (SUCs), but also in senior high schools offering technology courses like automotive technology. To address such difficulty, this study aimed to (1) design a power steering system trainer, (2) construct and test the device, and (3) evaluate the acceptability and effectiveness of the power steering system trainer. The said trainer was developed through the research and development (R&D) process. After the developmental phase, the evaluation of acceptability and effectiveness of the trainer was administered. As to the acceptability, the respondents rated the trainer 4.75 (out of 5.0) for the functionality, 4.73 for the mobility, 4.83 for safety, and 4.63 for maintainability. Thus, with the general weighted mean of 4.74, the trainer was very highly acceptable. In terms of effectiveness, the statistical result implied that the performance of the students using the power steering system trainer was better than the performance of the students using the conventional instructional device. Hence, it could be deduced that using this trainer as an instructional device provided a better understanding of the topic and enhanced the teaching-learning process.
