The Effect of Instructional Computer Games on Continuing Student Motivation.
Malouf, David B.
Journal of Special Education, v21 n4 p27-38 Win 1987-88
Learning-disabled sixth through eighth grade students (n=25) received vocabulary instruction involving matching negation prefixes to root words. The students used an instructional computer game or a computer program that operated identically but without game features. Both programs produced equal gains in task skill, but the game produced higher levels of continuing motivation. (Author/JDD)
