A CAI Study Skills Program.
Gadzella, Bernadette M.
This paper describes a computer assisted instruction (CAI) study skills program and reports the results of a study conducted to determine its effectiveness. The program consists of ten CAI study skills modules, a CAI study skills notebook, and a CAI study skills test. The modules address (1) managing time, (2) improving memory, (3) taking lecture notes, (4) reading textbooks, (5) taking examinations, (6) writing themes and reports, (7) making oral reports, (8) improving scholastic motivation, (9) improving interpersonal relations, and (10) improving concentration. Each module is followed by a 10-point multiple choice quiz. The notebook is systematically integrated with the modules and assists the students in making notes as they go through the program. The CAI study skills test consisting of 200 true and false statements was administered to 60 university students as both a pretest and a posttest. Students scored significantly higher on the posttest than on the pretest and indicated that they had learned a great deal from the program and recommended it to other students. A table of the results on the pre- and posttests for the 60 students and a bibliography of 18 items are included. (CHC)
