Fraser, B. J., & Teh, G. P. L. (1994, January). The effect sizes associated with an innovation in computer-assisted learning. Paper presented at the 7th International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement, Melbourne, Australia.
This study-of the efficacy of computer-assisted learning is distinctive in that (1) the innovation in CAL made use of micro-PROLOG, (2) traditional achievement and attitude outcomes were complemented by measures of
classroom psychosocial environment, and (3) the sample was drawn from the unique educational milieu provided by Singaporean schools. In contrast to past research, the use of micro-PROLOO-based CAL in this study led to massive impact in terms of achievement (effect size of 3.5 standard deviations), attitudes (1.4 standard deviations) and classroom environment (ranging from 0.1 to 1.9 standard deviations). Students in the CAL group had higher achievement and attitude scores, and they perceived their classroom environments more favourably in terms of greater gender equity,
investigation, innovation and resource adequacy.
