Students' perception about an educational application on mathematics

RICARDO-ADÁN SALAS-RUEDA

Abstract

The aim of this mixed research is to analyze the students' perceptions about the use of the Web Application for the teaching-learning process on the T-Test (WATT) during the COVID-19 post-pandemic considering data science. The participants are 33 students from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (NAUM). The results of linear regression indicate that the simulator of WATT positively influences the learning, motivation, and active role. Finally, technological advances such as WATT facilitate the performance of the school activities from anywhere and promote the participation at any time.
