Computerized Instruction in Mathematics Versus Other Methods of Mathematics Instruction Under ESEA Title I Programs in Kentucky.
Street, W. Paul, Ed.
Bureau of School Service Bulletin, v45 n1 Sep 72
This is a report on the evaluative study of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) in ESEA Title I mathematics projects in Kentucky compared to non-computerized programs under Title I. Results of remedial mathematics instruction for disadvantaged students in grades three through seven during the 1971-72 school year are compared. The report describes the CAI program and the non-CAI program; reviews the literature on experiences others have had with CAI; and includes data on the attitudes of students and teachers toward the programs, on comparison of students in each program on the basis of standardized test scores, and on costs of the programs. The study concludes that CAI programs were not more effective than non-CAI programs in generating student development in mathematics, recommends that both types of programs be strengthened, and makes three suggestions for guidelines for programs in compensatory mathematics funded under Title I.
