Computer Assisted Instruction versus Classroom Instruction (Mathematics).
Edgell, Larry J.
An ever-increasing number of classrooms are being equipped with computers. This trend began in the early 1970s and the numbers continue to swell at a more rapid pace each year. All facets of the computer world continue to multiply. Issues involving technology in schools will receive more and more attention, if not from internal sources then from society. The irresistible force of the Information Age, technology has not been dealt with in a manner that satisfies any one particular group. Technology should not be judged in isolation. This study was conducted in two fifth grade classrooms during the 1996-1997 school year. Subjects in the study were randomly selected by a computer and the students making up this study came from diverse backgrounds. The purpose of this study was to determine if Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) makes a significant difference in test scores. Results indicate that no significant difference existed between the two groups. (Contains 27 references.) (Author/NB)
