Covariates of Learning in Computer-Assisted Instruction.
Roid, Gale H.
The learning performance of college students given computer-assisted instruction (CAI) was investigated. Three introductory psychology lessons of 35 frames each were administered to matched groups under two modes: a) CAI mode (N = 15), and b) printed programed instruction mode (N = 11). Both lesson modes produced significant learning. Although no mean differences between modes was found, CAI mode produced significantly higher variances in learning performance (p = .01). Changes in attitudes toward computers and aspects of the subject matter were found to significantly covary with learning performance under the CAI mode (p = .05). The study provides information to guide the design of future CAI applications on the college level. (Author)
