Parametric Evaluation of Deaf Students’ Comprehension and Skills

Zainuddin Ibrahim, Norlidah Alias, and Abu Bakar Nordin
Abstract—The purpose of this study is to identify the effectiveness of graphic design learning module based on technology and deaf student learning styles towards deaf students’ comprehension and skills using parametric test. Deaf students require a different learning approach compared to normal students in ensuring their mastery in specific skills. Undoubtfully, sign language has become an impediment in dilevering message when some teachnical terms were not able be interpreted to sign language. The available language interpreters are on voluntary basis and are restricted to time, distant location and skills. To add to this, deaf student have weak memory to remember the lesson. In evaluating them, quiz has been used to evaluate their understanding through parametric testing paired sample t test. While project-type assignment has been used to evaluate skills through parametric testing one sample t test. Findings of the study a significant difference in pretest (mean = 15.54, S.D = 1.989, n = 15) and posttest (mean = 78.15, S.D = 2.832, n = 15) for all topics. Subsequently, posttest towards project shows significant difference on skills achievement (t(15) = 23.822, p <. 05) especially on high inference value campared to others topics. In conclusions, parametric testing proves that graphic design learning module based on technology and deaf student learning styles towards deaf student comprehension and skills are significant.

Index Terms—Parametric, graphic design, deaf students, technology, learning styles.
