The Use of Educational Software in Adult Literacy Programs (1996)

A comparison of Integrated Learning Systems and Stand-alone Software

This research project, administered by the Stevenson-Britannia Community Resource Centre of Manitoba, examined the results of three ILSes used in Manitoba, namely TRO's PLATO, the Columbia Computer Corporation package, and the Pathfinder computer-managed instruction system and compared them with those received for students in other literacy programs who were using only stand-alone software.

In addition to investigating four formal variables, a teacher's questionnaire was developed and administered to examine the other presumed advantages and disadvantages of using computer- assisted instruction in adult literacy classrooms which are often cited in the literature. Overall, twelve advantageous claims and eight disadvantageous claims were examined. The findings of the study are summarized in the report and when applicable recommendations are made.
