Computer-Based Instruction Proves its Worth in West Virginia

Researchers from Columbia University released a study on the
effectiveness of West Virginia's Basic Skills/Computer Education (BS/CE)
program. According to the study, commissioned by the Milken Family
Foundation of Los Angeles, instructional technology can make a major
impact on student achievement. The study is based on 8 years of
documented student achievement outcomes, which demonstrated scores
averaging 4% higher in math, language arts, reading, and basic skills.
The cost-effective program also demonstrated the effectiveness of equal
access to computers across gender and socio-economic levels.
