Computer-Assisted Instruction at Kendall Demonstration Elementary School.
Nomeland, Ronald E.; Harris, Rachel
A computer-assisted instruction (CAI) laboratory provides deaf students at Kendall School in Washington, D.C. with drill and practice exercises in mathematics. The Stanford-developed curriculum offers two basic math options--fixed and mixed strand. During the first full year of operation, CAI math was offered to 111 students, ages 8-15. Stanford Achievement Test (SAT) results were used to check the achievement gains of students using the program. Twenty out of 28 lower elementary students achieved at least one grade level in math; eight achieved two years. Fifteen out of 33 upper elementary students demonstrated a one grade increase; eight out of 23 middle school students increased one grade or more. The lower achievement gains for middle school students were attributed to the fact that most of them remained in mixed strand programs for most of the year and that their SAT level test scores may have been less valid.
