Pretest and posttest scores on three Fennema-Sherman
Attitude Scales (Mathematics Anxiety, Confidence in Learning
Mathematics, and Attitude Toward Success in Mathematics) were
analyzed, as well as the scores from the Texas Essential Skills Test for
Algebra I (Forms A and B).
Analysis of the data revealed that the experimental group
improved significantly on both the Confidence in Learning
Mathematics and Mathematics Anxiety Scales, and while they
improved on their achievement and attitude toward success scores,
they were not significant. The experimental group females, when
compared to their males counterparts, increased significantly in their
achievement, and although their success, and confidence levels were
improved, they were not significant.
It is recommended that further studies be conducted to
investigate attitude and achievement of students using computer-
based instruction at all levels of instruction. It is also recommended
that other variables be investigated.
