- Background of the Study
The use of computer assisted instruction is increasingly common in many disciplines in the world. Reserve materials are available online from braries class discussions are held via-mail, textbook publishers provide WWW sites for their production etc. software developers are making programs to various Secondary Schools that greatly encourage on-line instruction and testing. Although these materials are generally used as substitute for class meeting in the rapidly growing area of distance education. Little is known about the effectiveness of these computer assisted supplements to face to face instruction. How intensively will students utilize online course materials increase comprehension and relation? Despite the paucity of answer to these and similar questions, the rush to make on-lined technology an important component of Secondary Education continues. This study assesses the effectiveness of on-line materials in economic course. It is offered as traditional face to face course for several years by the instructors with no computer assisted component.
In this case, supplemental computer assisted components are added to existing course without a complete overhaul of the design and pedagogical approach.
These are many advantages to an analysis of the effectiveness of computer assisted instructional techniques in this particular setting. The adoption of computer assisted instructional techniques in frequently an incremental process and instructors argument face to face classes with some components.
This is so called economics subject, is offered by all Secondary Schools in Nigeria especially 3 -3 Secondary educations. There will be therefore considerable heterogeneity among students participating in this study.
Moreover, because similar course are taught at a wide variety of schools, the evidence here will be of interest to a board audience also unlike many other discipline economics is not an important part of the Secondary School curriculum. Students’ first exposure to economic comes the effects of prior academic experience on outcomes.
- Statement of the Problem
Many research works had been carried out on the effects that Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) especially the use of web-bases materials have in the academic performance of Nigeria economic students yet little in the efforts could be show for it.
This piece of study has raised some questions on the effects of CAI learning outcomes of Nigeria students in economic in Secondary Schools.
- How far have the economic gone in using computer assisted instructions?
- Could the use of internet and other computer assisted resources bring positive changes to academic activities make than actually computer literates in economics?
- Does the use of computer assisted instructional materials make the actually computer literates?
- What is the percentage of students in economics in secondary school that have developed in the effective use of computer assisted instructional materials?
In specific terms, it is quite apparent that student in economics have problems in the use of Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) in their academic pursuits. Consequently, some of the students have little or no interest in making use of this so-called computer assisted instructional materials.
