The Effectiveness of Computer-Based Adult Education: A Meta-Analysis

Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 2, Number 2,


A meta-analysis of findings from 24 controlled evaluations showed computer-assisted instruction (CAI) usually has positive effects on adult learners, i.e., it raised examination scores and reduced instruction time. Reliable conclusions could not be reached on CAI's long-term cognitive effects because of small number of studies investigating such effects. (Author/MBR)
