  Abstract: Monitoring and assessing the students' learning activities before (pre-), during (in-) and after (post-) lecture teaching in a large (more than 150 students) introductory physics class are important to evaluate the efficacies of new teaching pedagogies and methods. At Texas Tech, an online and integrative computer-based approach of using an interactive pre-lecture Just-in-Time tutorial, in-lecture Peer-Instruction clickers, and post-lecture Lab and online homework was implemented in the last two semesters. Using standard mechanics concepts and baseline surveys as well as independent classroom observations, the effects of these computer-based technologies on students' learning of physics concepts and problem-solving skills among different student subgroups taught by TAs and lecturers using different levels of student interactive engagement in class are investigated. Comparisons among computer-based technology interventions and their predictive roles in learning outcomes will be examined using Pearson correlation and multivariate analysis methods.
