Using Pre-test/Post-test Data To Evaluate the Effectiveness of Computer Aided Instruction (A Study of CAI and Its Use with Developmental Reading Students).
Lansford, Carl E.
As computer aided instruction (CAI) and distance learning become more popular, a model for easily evaluating these teaching methods must be developed, one which will enable replication of the study each year. This paper discusses the results of a study using existing dependent and independent variables to evaluate CAI for developmental reading students at Texas Southmost College and the University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB/TSC). Pre-test and post-test data, time-on-task in CAI, and multiple regression analysis were used. The following five threats to the internal validity of the one-group, pre-test-posttest design are explained: history, maturation, testing, instrumentation, and interaction of selection and any one of the other threats to internal validity.
