ABSTRACT
In Taiwan, the National Science Council has implemented the High Scope Program (HSP) since 2006. The purpose of this study was to analyze the development and effectiveness of senior high school HSP courses on emerging technology. This study used a course on virtual reality as an example, to investigate the influence of emerging technology courses on senior high school students' attitude toward technology. Research results showed that among students in the experimental group, the following constructs: cognition of the importance of technology, performance of technology-related action, and technology career planning, had been significantly enhanced. This study then developed the "Virtual Reality Course Performance Assessment Scale", and performed cross-evaluation of course teacher and non-course teachers to confirm this scale presenting great content validity, internal consistency validity, and scorer reliability. This scale can provide students and teachers with objective assessment indicators, which can be used to understand the learning effectiveness of students. Lastly, this study discussed the results of this research and external evaluation, as well as provided suggestions for future implementation and modification of the virtual reality course.
