Abstract

The study will evaluate the effects of a personalized computer-assisted English reading comprehension program on the performance and attitude of fifth-grade Taiwanese students. The purpose of the study is to determine whether the personalized computer-assisted instruction in English reading comprehension improves student performance and attitude over the non-personalized program. The research will use the pretest-to-posttest to determine if the computer-assisted program was effective between the two groups. The reading comprehension exam will be based on sixth-grade English textbooks. All of the subjects will be randomly assigned to a personalized or non-personalized group. In the personalized group, students will complete a survey asking them what their favorite classes, fruits, sports, and supermarkets were. Their preferences will be then used to create personalized questions in the computer-assisted program. In the non-personalized group, students will take the same survey as the personalized group, but will be taught using a standardize lesson in the computer-assisted program.
