Achievement and Attitude with Computer Related Instruction: A Field Experiment.
Broh, C. Anthony
A field experiment is described on the use of computer-related instruction at the college level in political science. The program modules are designed to: (1) teach a substantive body of knowledge in an introductory American government course; (2) introduce students to the basic methods of data analysis; and (3) teach elementary techniques of computer use. The substantive material and the basic concepts of data analysis were presented to a second introductory American government course in lecture format. The control group was not a course normally taught by the experimenter. Significant student achievement in methodology and computer concepts were found with the computer-developed modules. It was found that computer-related instructed students did no worse than lecture-taught students in voting behavior topics. The document concludes with a discussion of the implications of the research for higher education. (Author/JR)
