Summary

This study investigated the effect of informational, drill, and game format computer-assisted instruction (CAI) on the achievement, retention, and attitude toward instruction of sixth-grade science students (N=37). An informational CAI lesson on Halley's Comet was administered to three randomly selected groups of sixth-grade students. A CAI drill about the content of the informational lesson was given to one group, and a CAI game was given to another group; only the informational lesson was presented to the third group. No significant differences were found between the groups on a posttest measuring achievement given immediately after the instruction or on a retention posttest given one month later. Students in the group receiving the CAI game did differ significantly from the other groups in their attitude about how much they had learned from the lesson. (IAH)
