Abstract

The aim of this research is to study about the effect of using courseware in the learning process for student that posed field independence-dependence cognitive styles. This research involved two group of students which purposely chosen from the electrical engineering department in one of polytechnic in Malaysia. The research design for this study is quasi-experimental which involved pre test and post test as the instruments. Besides, this study also involved the usage of Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT) and questionnaires. Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT) was used to determine whether the student is in field-independence group or field-dependence group. This research is focusing on the difference of student achievement between the control group and treatment group. Besides, the difference between the field- independence students and field-dependence student are also to be compared. The test that has been use in this study is independent t test which the result of that test is, there is significant difference between control and treatment group in their test result. There is also significant difference between control and treatment group of field- dependence student but there is no significant difference between them for the field- independence students. As conclusion, courseware usage is effective among the field- dependence students but is less effective than the field-independence students while there are compared by their test achievement.
