The Learning Effectiveness of Application of Computer Assisted Instruction to C-Level Technical Test of Computer Software for Special Educational Students

Wan-Ju Chen and Hong-Min Lin
Abstract—Whether Special educational students in a vocational school can work and integrate into this competitive society in the future, surely vocational skills teaching of vocational education is one of the elements of success. From the educational perspective, technical vocational education is through the implementation of skills test; for students’ perspective, there must be taken in account their interest in learning and employment needs. For Special educational students in a vocational school, if they can obtain C-level technical certificate, it will be a sure way to increase their self-confidence. After graduation, that can also increase student employment opportunities, and improve the success rate of employment. In the modern teaching environment, how to use information technology and how to appropriate all kinds of teaching technology or media into curriculum design and teaching methods --these have become a challenge for teachers. The purpose of this paper is to explore the effectiveness of Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) in the application of C –level Technical Learning of Computer software applications for special educational students in a vocational school. The A-B-A-B reversion design of single tester was used in the study, while the independent variable is computer-aided instruction teaching and dependent variable as learning effectiveness of the tester. In this study, after four weeks of experiments, we found that the application of computer-aided instruction to train Special educational students in the computer software C-level technical learning, can improve student learning effectiveness.

Index Terms—Special educational student, computer-assisted instruction, technical certificate.
