A Note on the Effectiveness of Computer-Assisted Instruction.
Fletcher, J. D..; And Others
Though the Coleman Report stated that factors within the schools seem to affect achievement much less than factors outside the schools, this report suggests that there are strong and consistent achievement gains by students when they are given computer-assisted instruction (CAI) over a reasonable fraction of a school year. Supporting this claim is an annotated listing of 16 studies that discuss CAI programs that have been effectively used. The programs include all levels of instruction and a wide range of curricular subject: mathematics, science, nursing, and languages. The authors report that the current literature reveals practically no negative findings in CAI evaluations. (MC)
