This study examines the scholastic impact and opinion of learning in the anatomy laboratory as it relates to the lecture. The teaching of Animal Anatomy in the Animal Science department has traditionally been taught via classroom lecture and supported with a textbook. This study compares one scholastic semester without a laboratory and another scholastic semester offering a laboratory in partnership with the traditional lecture. The students without a laboratory were examined by means of their final grades in comparison with the laboratory and lecture combination. In order to acquire perspectives on the impact the laboratory had on student learning a survey was offered to participating laboratory students at the end of the semester. Standardized test scores ACT and SAT were found to be better predictors of students final grades then was participation in the optional laboratory experience.
