The Java-DSP (J-DSP) on-line laboratory software has been developed from the ground up at Arizona State University to support the computer lab portion of the senior-level DSP course. J-DSP provides capabilities for web-based DSP simulations that can be run using a PC with a Java-enabled browser. J-DSP is accompanied by exercises that actively engage students in several concepts including Z-transforms, filter design, spectral analysis, and random signal processing. Tools and on-line instruments for assessment of the J-DSP software and the associated lab exercises have been developed and described in this letter. Statistical analysis of the pre/post assessment data revealed that the effect of student involvement and the student learning has been enhanced by using J-DSP.
