Effects of Computer-Assisted Instruction and Demonstration Method of Teaching Automobile Technology in Federal Colleges of Education (Technical) in North-Eastern Nigeria
M. U. Cyril PhD
The study compared the relative effectiveness of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) and demonstration method of teaching automobile technology in federal colleges of education (Technical) in Yobe and Gombe states, both in North-Eastern Nigeria. The students in federal college of education (Technical) Potiskum were taught using computerassisted instruction. While those students in federal college of education (Technical) Gombe were taught using demonstration method of teaching. Four research questions and four null hypotheses were formulated in line with the purposes to guide the study. The pre-test and post-test non-equivalent quasi experimental design was used. The researchers developed computer-assisted instructional package and an achievement test which were validated and administered to final year NCE 111for the 2010/2011 academic session students in automobile technology. The t-test statistical method was used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The result of the findings revealed that CAI group performed better than the demonstration method of teaching group. A significant difference exist between the post-test mean achievement scores of the students taught automobile technology using computer-assisted instruction and those taught using demonstration method of teaching. Based on the findings, colleges of education were advised to provide CAI software to make teaching and learning more effective.
