An Evaluation of Computer-Assisted Instruction Using a Drill-and-Practice Program in Mathematics.
Davies, Thomas Peter
The purpose of this study was to determine if students using computer-assisted instruction in the Strands mathematics program do significantly better than students not using the computer, and if there is a significant change in attitude toward self, mathematics, teacher, and machines on the part of students associated with the computer. Approximately 240 students from grades two through six were involved in the study and were generally in the low ability range. The Stanford Achievement test and a semantic differential were used. It was found that students using the computer performed significantly better in computational skills than those not using the computer. There was no shift in attitudes, either positive or negative, measured by the semantic differential that was significant. (Author/DT)
