Abstract

Early finding shows that Civil Engineering students of KUiTTHO face difficulties when it comes to cogniti ve perceptions of concepts and procedures of Steel Structural Design subject. Due to the complex and long derived calculations, students are easily confused and tend to loose interest and concentration in this subject. In order to help such ones, a programme called PRRK was built using Microsoft Excel software for the design of steel beam. PRRK is prepared based on the design procedures adopted by British Standard Institutions BS 5950, Structural Use of Steelwork in Building. A group of twenty one final semester Diploma students from Civil Engineering Department of KUiTTHO taking up Structure Design were asked to evaluate the programme. Evaluation was done on the content, user friendliness and feasibility of the programme using mean score method. The researcher also tried to see if there existed any relationship between the experiences of computer usage in studies by students with their evaluation of the PRRK. Mean score results reveals that the programme content is good, user friendly and feasible. Spearman Correlations test revealed that there is no significant relationship between the experiences of computer usage in studies by students with their evaluation of the PRRK.
