Effects of Computer-Assisted Instruction on Students' Final Grades. Applied Educational Research And Evaluation.
Brum, Joseph, Jr.
The effect of computer-assisted instruction versus the traditional lecture method on final grades was compared with two groups of students taking two business organization classes at Fayetteville Technical Institute. Thirty-two students attended four 1-hour lectures per week (the control group), while 38 students received computer-assisted instruction for four 1-hour classes each week (the experimental group). The control group consisted of 17 freshmen and 15 sophomores, while the experimental group consisted of 23 freshmen and 15 sophomores. Both groups, who had the same instructor, were administered pre- and post-tests, which consisted of 25 multiple choice and 25 true and false statements that were selected from the instructor's manual. It was found that, on the average, students who received computer-assisted instruction achieved a significantly higher grade point average than students who received lecture material in the traditional manner.
