Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Educational Technology Conference (8th, Eskisehir, Turkey, May 6-9, 2008)
Many primary studies have been performed to reveal the effects of computer assisted instruction (CAI) on students' attitudes towards science courses. In determining the effectiveness of these studies, gathering and evaluating of the studies at some characteristics play an important role. The aim of this study is to determine meta-analytically the overall effectiveness of CAI on students' attitudes towards science courses from the years 2000 to 2007 in Turkey. This paper reported the results of 23 effect sizes included in 17 studies, since some studies performed multiple comparisons within the same study. The overall number of subject was 1583. Grand mean for 23 ESs was calculated as 0,68. When this mean ES was converted to percentiles, the percentiles on students' attitudes towards science course were 75 for the CAI group and 50 for TI group. In other words, an average student's attitude towards science course moved from the 50th percentile to the 75th percentile when computer assisted instruction was used.
