Effects of Computer-Assisted Instruction on Reading and Mathematics Achievement of Chapter 1 Students.
Zollman, Alan; And Others
Two parallel studies were conducted to determine whether students' achievement in reading and/or mathematics would be affected by the use of Education Systems Corporation (ESC) Software for Chapter 1 students. Students in the experimental groups used the software twice a week during a period of one school year, with 561 Chapter 1 students in grades 2 through 6 taking part in the reading study, and 420 students in grades 4 through 6 participating in the mathematics study. Approximately one-half of the students included in the reading study also participated in the mathematics study. The Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT) Mathematics and Reading Surveys were administered using a pretest posttest design to determine any differences between the control group and the experimental group in each study. An analysis of the MAT Reading Survey and MAT Mathematics Survey results showed statistically significant positive gains for the Chapter 1 students who worked with the ESC software, and that these gains were significantly greater than those of students in the control group.
