Since computer-assisted instruction has been used for over a decade in an attempt to meet the need of individualization, the writer has attempted to present a review of current research focused on the following questions: (1) Have there been changes in the academic achievement of elementary children who are enrolled in regular or special education programs as the result of computer-assisted instruction? (2) What have been the behaviors and attitudes of elementary children toward computer-assisted instruction? (3) What have been the reactions of teachers, parents and administrators toward computer-assisted instruction? (4) What have been the overall problems generated in implementing computers as a means of instruction?
