Computer Assisted Instruction: An Innovative Approach to the Development of Comprehension at the College Freshman Level.
Thompson, H. Wendell; And Others
Computer assisted instruction (CAI) modules were developed to improve the reading comprehension skills of college students at Alabama A and M University. These modules were designed and tested to provide individualized instruction in a remedial reading program that was already operating at full capacity. Based on an informal assessment, it appears that CAI can be used effectively to supplement classroom experience in reading. (One portion of a module on finding the main idea is offered as an example of how the CAI modules are designed and used.) (Author/RL)
