Kolpashnikova, Kamila; Bartolic, Silvia – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Computer-assisted instruction can change the way introductory statistics and quantitative methods courses are taught. Using a two-group pretest-posttest design, we conducted an experiment using an undergraduate social science student sample to investigate whether the introduction of statistical software to teaching quantitative methods would…

Davis, K.; Sridharan, H.; Koepke, L.; Singh, S.; Boiko, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The current study investigated college students' experiences of a gamified informatics course. We surveyed 139 students aged 18-31 years (M = 20 years, SD = 1.5) enrolled in an undergraduate informatics course focused on social networking technologies. Surveys were conducted at 3 time points during the course (beginning, middle, and end). Overall,…

Fleming, Raymond; Kienzler, Sarah; Stoiber, Leah; Fleming, Ryan R.; Pedrick, Laura E.; Reddy, Diane M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Less than optimal student success in gateway courses figures prominently in college noncompletion. Past findings suggest that "U-Pace" instruction holds promise for increasing student success. However, all published studies of "U-Pace" instruction were conducted in the gateway course context of introductory psychology. The…

Mize, Min Kyung; Park, Yujeong; Moore, Tara – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The purpose of this study was to synthesize the effectiveness of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) studies aiming to increase vocabulary for students with disabilities in an effort to identify what type of CAI is promising for practice. An extensive search process with inclusion and exclusion criteria yielded a total of 13 single-subject design…

Mo, D.; Zhang, L.; Wang, J.; Huang, W.; Shi, Y.; Boswell, M.; Rozelle, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer assisted learning (CAL) programs have been shown to be effective in improving educational outcomes. However, the existing studies on CAL have almost all been conducted over a short period of time. There is very little evidence on how the impact evolves over time. In response, we conducted a clustered randomized experiment involving 2741…

De Witte, K.; Haelermans, C.; Rogge, N. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer-assisted instruction (CAI) programs are considered as a way to improve learning outcomes of students. However, little is known on the schools who implement such programs as well as on the effectiveness of similar information and communication technology programs. We provide a literature review that pays special attention to the existing…
