# Discriminant Factors of using Web Based Instruction (WBI) on the Mathematics of Mathayomsuksa 5 Students, Kalasin Province.

## Abstract

Web Based Instruction (WBI) as an important tool for effective teachinglearning, help the instructors easily to teach the skills, experience, opinions and
attitudes toward learning to learner. The purposes of this study were to analyse
discriminant factors of using Web Based Instruction (WBI) on the mathematics of
mathayomsuksa 5 students, Kalasin Province and to create equation of the
discriminant factors of using Web Based Instruction (WBI) on the mathematics of
mathayomsuksa 5 students, Kalasin Province. The sample group were 200
mathayomsuksa 5 students in Kalasin Province which devised by Multi-Stage
Random Sampling technique. The instrument used for collecting data was the
discriminant factors of using Web Based Instruction (WBI) on the mathematics
Test. The mean, standard deviation, Distribution Coefficient, Correlation between
variables and discriminant analysis technique with stepwise method were used
for data analysis.
The findings were as follows : the factors that discriminated the use of
Web Based Instruction (WBI) on the mathematics were attitudes towards the use
of Web Based Instruction (WBI) = (X1), Inquiry Skills = (X2), The process of
teacher education = (X5), and School Management = (X6). The discriminant
function was as follows :
The discriminant equation was presented with the raw scores as follows:
= -10.989+1.011X1 + .631X2+ .414X5+ .888X6
The discriminant equation was presented with the standard scores as
follows:
Y = .400Zx1 + .260Zx2 + .175Zx5+ .392Zx6
The discriminant function could be able to predict correctly the groups
of students who used the Web Based Instruction (WBI) on the mathematics
about 82.3 percent, and The discriminant function could be able to predict
correctly the groups of students who not used the Web Based Instruction (WBI)
on the mathematics about 92.0 percent. In overall, the equation could be able
to predict correctly the 2 groups of students about 87.2 percent.
In conclusion, Factors that influence to discriminant of students which
learning and not learning of mathematics through Web Based Instruction (WBI)
with 4 Factors by descending order of importance as follow: attitudes toward
teaching and learning through the Web Based Instruction (WBI), School
Management, Inquiry Skills, and the process of teaching and learning. Therefore,
both teachers and parents should be a process of learning to use the Web Based
Instruction (WBI) based on these factors to continue to promote learning.
