Abstract—This study aimed to review the effects on skill-based agricultural senior high school students’ learning after agricultural mechatronics modular-course was applied to their thematic practice. Statistical data were collected by employing test papers. Paired sample t-test was adopted to draw a comparison between precourse learning effects and postcourse learning effects. Analysis results indicated that there is significant difference in 40 skill-based senior high school students’ learning effects after those students took the modular-course. It appears that agricultural mechatronics modular-course has a positive effect on students’ learning and unit course “applications of sensor in agriculture” is popular with students.

Index Terms—Mechatronics, thematic practice, learning effect.
