Coast's Practitioners Review Computer Assisted Instruction.
Brightman, Richard W.
A review of the literature concerning computer assisted instruction (CAI) yielded 23 assertions of the value of CAI as an instructional technique. Sixty-seven faculty members in two community colleges who have had opportunities to use CAI were surveyed as to their agreement or disagreement with each assertion. The faculty responses showed widespread agreement with all 23 assertions with a few differences of opinion appearing between faculty members teaching technical and those teaching non-technical subjects. Comments made by the respondents suggest a need for data file access for CAI purposes and that alternative instructional systems may be more effective than CAI in realizing some of the assertions. The author recommends that considerably more research is needed to compare the relative costs of CAI and to assess whether or not its increased effectiveness, if any, is justified. (Author/LP)
