Abstract

This study investigated the long-term and early effects of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) on students’ literacy skills. Elementary school students in a Maryland school district were given access to CAI as a supplemental reading curriculum for up to three years. At the end of second grade, literacy scores of students who used CAI for two or three years, in kindergarten, first grade, or second grade, were compared to scores of students who did not use the software. Students who used the CAI software had significantly higher scores than those who did not. Additionally, students who used the software for three years scored higher than those who used the software for two years, demonstrating a dosage effect of CAI.
