Summary

This research assessed the academic impact of a computer-assisted instructional (CAI) software program to teach mathematics. The research hypothesis states that the use of the CAI program will produce superior academic achievement in mathematics for students who use the program compared to students instructed in mathematics without the program. The CAI program provided students with instruction in mathematics ranging from rudimentary concepts to high school algebra and geometry. This study involved elementary and middle grade students from a large urban North Carolina public school system with an enrollment of approximately 100,000. The study divided the students into two groups: a test or experimental group that used the CAI program, and a control group of students who were not exposed to the CAI program. It is concluded that students should benefit from the use of a CAI software program as a supplement to regular classroom instruction in basic mathematics and algebra. African-American students seem to benefit the most. If CAI is used appropriately, the gap between white and African-American students should begin to close. (Contains 27 references.) (ASK)
