Evaluating the effectiveness of computers as tutors in China
3ie Impact Evaluation Report 41, 2016
This study by Mo et al., looked at the factors that influence the effectiveness of ICT as an educational tool in China. Researchers found that a researcher-implemented computer-assisted learning programme for providing remedial English tutoring was more effective in improving student performance in English compared to a government-implemented programme. The study also concluded that a computer-assisted instruction programme that required teachers to provide instructions led to an improvement of English test scores, when compared to only providing the software without teaching support.
