Effects of a Computer Assisted Instruction EEE Seminar on Mathematics Achievement and Academic Self-Concept of Students at a Predominantly Black College in a Rural Community in the South.
Reglin, Gary L.; Butler, Don
This study examined the effectiveness of computer assisted instruction (CAI) in improving the mathematics achievement and academic self-confidence of black students in an Education Entrance Examination (EEE) seminar at a predominantly black college in South Carolina. Subjects were 49 students participating in the seminar, 43% black males and 47% black females. Students in the experimental group received 30 minutes of CAI in addition to EEE seminar instruction in mathematics given to both the control and experimental groups. Results of analyses of covariance indicated that EEE seminar students exposed to the CAI mathematics program scored significantly higher in basic skills mathematics and academic self-concept than the students who were not exposed to the CAI treatment. The results provide evidence that low SES students in the control group also increased their basic skills mathematics and academic self-concept scores, whereas high SES students neither increased nor decreased their scores significantly.
