The Effects of Computer Aided Spelling Instruction and Traditional Spelling Instruction on Achievement and Attitude.
Gore, Dolores; And Others
This study compared the achievement scores for students receiving traditional spelling instruction to achievement scores earned with computer aided instruction. Similarly, attitude measures were compared for the same subjects. Fourth- and fifth-grade pupils received traditional spelling instruction for five weeks. For the next five weeks, students received their spelling instruction via a computer program. Testing was conducted in a traditional end-of-the-week spelling test for the entire experiment. Students' attitudes were measured using a semantic differential at the beginning and end of the computer aided segment of the study. Student achievement improved with computer aided instruction while the attitudes typically did not. (Author)
