Computers and Reading Achievement.
Hamilton, Vanessa
A study examined the effect of computer assisted instruction on the reading achievement of third- through sixth-grade students in a low socio-economic status community. Subjects were 23 students randomly selected from 41 students who received computer-assisted instruction and 23 students randomly selected from 28 students who did not receive computer assisted instruction. Subjects attended a Chicago, Illinois public school located in the Lawndale community of the city's west side. Students who scored at or below stanine three on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills were randomly assigned to traditional basal reading instruction, or to reading instruction using the computer. Results indicated that reading scores were not affected by computer usage. Results also indicated no significant differences between boys' reading achievement based on method of reading instruction, or between girls' achievement based on method of instruction.
