Anatomy and Physiology is a class that relies heavily on visual models. In this study, the use of the Anatomage table was used during the skeletal system and muscular system units. A comparison group did not use the table for their lab in the first unit, and an experimental group used the table. During the second unit, the groups switched so that all students got to experience working with the table in at least one unit. Pre and post-test data, surveys, interviews, and retention tests were used as data collection tools. The results suggest that the Anatomage table has benefits for some students, especially in identifying and applying the knowledge acquired in the units. It had less of an impact on written test scores, especially in higher achieving students.
