Abstract

The Mouse Factory contains a set of web-based, active learning modules for teaching statistical quality control. This paper will present teaching control charts for attributes using the Mouse Factory. The current pedagogy in today's classrooms is based upon lectures and homework problems from textbooks. This approach typically focuses on the knowledge and application domains of Bloom's Taxonomy. The current pedagogy removes students from applying higher order cognitive skills. By using the Mouse Factory, students must select the most appropriate improvement project to undertake, design a sampling plan, implement a control chart and evaluate the effectiveness of the implement control chart. Assessment of student behavior and attitudes will be discussed and evaluated.
