Abstract: The computer can serve as a tutor to deliver pre-programmed instructional materials to students. This form of instruction commonly known as Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) has been found to help increase students' academic achievement (Bangert-Drowns, Kulik, & Kulik, 1985). CA1 has many instructional advantages. It allows students to progress at their own speed and interact actively, and it provides positive and immediate feedback to students. However, with the abundance and easy availability of many CA1 packages, teachers may find it useful to have a guide to help them evaluate these computer materials. This paper will briefly describe four attributes that are commonly associated with CA1 software, namely, content, instructional, screen presentation, and technical attributes, and at the end of the paper will propose an evaluation tool for teachers to use.
