Abstract

Statistics is one of the subjects which is considered difficult by students. The lecturers should not only explain and give exercises to students but also need to listen to what the students feel and think as well as trying to find the solutions they have in statistics class. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of cyber counseling services in improving students skills in statistics and to increase psychological well being. Thirty college students who were attending statistics class and got low scores were involved in this study. Treatment in the form of cyber counseling service was given for four months with a frequency of three hours per day by a lecturer. Students were given an opportunity to share their difficulties and together with their lecturer attempted to find the solution. After the treatment, the monitoring of performance acquisition was done. T test analysis was applied to compare the acquisition performance before and after the assignment was administered. The results show that there was significant difference in the students statistics performance. They improved statistics performance significantly after they received cyber counseling service. These findings are very useful in pursuing appropriate statistical teaching methods for students in college.
