Evaluation of the New York City Computer Assisted Instruction Project in Elementary Arithmetic, Second Year, 1969-70.
Abramson, Theodore; Weiner, Max
Reported are some of the outcomes of the second year of a large computer assisted instruction program for drill and practice in elementary school arithmetic. Conclusions drawn from an examination of the amount of computer assisted instruction completed by the students and the effect of the drill and practice program on the students were that: (1) pupils were exposed to about one-third the number of lessons originally intended, (2) software did not appropriately compensate for individual differences, (3) achievement test results showed no consistent pattern favoring CAI or non-CAI groups, (4) the amount of drill and practice in CAI and non-CAI classes were not observably different, and (5) attitudes toward the program of students, teachers, administrators, and parents were favorable.
