Attitude Toward Cooperative Learning, Computer Assisted Instruction, Confidence in Subject Matter, Cooperative Learning, Mathematics Achievement Scores
This study investigated mathematics achievement scores between students working in cooperative learning groups using computer assisted instruction (CAI), and students working alone using CAI in a post-secondary developmental mathematics class. Fifty-one students enrolled in a basic mathematics course participated in the study. Two classes were assigned to work alone using CAI, and two classes were assigned to work in cooperative pairs using CAI. This study was a pre-post-test design, and was administered to all participants to determine their mathematics achievement scores.
A survey using a 5 point Likert Scale further examined if using cooperative learning and CAI would change students' attitude towards their confidence in the subject matter, their attitude towards working in cooperative learning groups.
