Horton, Steven V.; Lovitt, Thomas C.
Remedial and Special Education, v15 n6 p378-90 Nov 1994
Seventy-two secondary students (with learning disabilities, remedial, or normally achieving) enrolled in science and social studies classes read textbook passages, completed study guides, and took tests using a computer or pencil and paper. On factual questions, analysis favored the computer overall, whereas no differences were found on interpretive test items between computer and paper/pencil methods. (JDD)
