Computer-Assisted Phonic Analysis: A Validation Study.
Thompson, Ruby L.
A study was designed to investigate and evaluate the development of a computer-assisted instruction (CAI) phonics program. The program was administered to 36 students enrolled in an undergraduate reading methods course. Subjects were pretested, and based on pretest performance, they were branched to CAI which included illustrative lessons, student self-evaluation, and computer-evaluation of multi-lined constructed responses. Results of analyses of pretest and posttest data showed that the course was valid for instruction at the designated level--a comparison of the pretest and posttest performance revealed significant gains for each student. Recommendations for future research and course optimization include requiring the course for preservice reading teachers and using these groups for future revisions, incorporating a mastery model, and including some consequential evaluation of the revised course. EM 011 037 through EM 011 043, EM 011 046, EM 011 047, and EM 011 049 through EM 011 058 are related documents. (SH)
