Effect of Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) on Reading Achievement: A Meta-Analysis.
Soe, Kyaw; Koki, Stan; Chang, Juvenna M.
Whether computer-assisted instruction (CAI) can improve reading achievement of students has been a crucial question addressed by studies in the past. This meta-analysis reviewed 17 research studies based on K-12 students and revealed that CAI does have a positive effect on reading achievement. Although the effects of CAI in the 17 studies were not homogeneous, there seems to be no particular study characteristic that might have caused the heterogeneity. Findings suggest computer applications to teach reading hold great promise as instructional tools. (Contains 8 tables of data, 4 figures, and 21 references. Attached is a list of the 17 studies reviewed.) (Author/NKA)
