Zirkel J, Zirkel P. Technological Alternatives to Actual Dissection in Anatomy Instruction: A Review of the Research. Educational Technology.1997 Nov-Dec;37(6);52-56


Reviews the limited research on computer software alternatives to actual dissection in biology instruction. Concludes that research should include larger more representative samples; higher priority on psychometrically sound instrumentation; a paper-based comparison group; a design that carefully considers attitude; and practical measures to mitigate or buffer researcher bias.
