Abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate if integrating basic analytical methods and computer interface technology would result in a positive change in student attitude. Students' self-concept of science knowledge and skills (Capability), opinion towards science (Affect), and perceptions of the value of science (Value) were determined with attitudinal surveys administered in a pre/post test design. Three separate lab modification groups were compared based upon level of integration over three academic semesters. The main findings were student attitude toward science improved with more integration
