THE EFFECT OF VIRTUAL LABORATORY IN BASIC ELECTRONICS SUBJECTS ON STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES OF THE ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING EDUCATION DEPARTMENT
Main Article Content
Some facilities for basic electronics practicum in the electrical engineering education laboratory are not yet
available. Therefore, a substitute practicum effort is made to use a virtual laboratory to achieve
predetermined competencies. The research model for this is a quasi-experimental design with a design type
nonequivalent control group design. The data review methodology utilized the t-test to detect variations in
student learning results. The findings showed that the learning outcomes in a class using a virtual laboratory
had an average value of 73.5 and a standard deviation of 9.66 with the highest trend level of 18.75%.
Meanwhile, the class that did not use a virtual laboratory obtained an average value of 67.84, and the
standard deviation was 10.00, with the highest tendency level of 6.25%. The populations in this study were
all first-semester students in the 2020/2021 academic year majoring in electrical engineering education at
Universitas Negeri Medan. The results of the t-test on learning outcomes in basic electronics subjects
obtained tcount> ttable (2.3>1.999), meaning that there was a positive influence or improvement on student
learning outcomes in classes using virtual laboratories on basic electronics subjects
