This study reviewed the effects of computer-assisted instruction (CAI), in the form of the Prescription Learning (PL), in combination with basal-based instruction (BBI), on the 1987-1988 class of low SES and non-low SES Atlanta Public School second graders. The goal of this study was to inquire whether CAI, in combination with BBI was more effective at teaching low SES African-American student than BBI alone. To determine whether PL was an effective teaching tool with both low SES and non-low SES second t ratios and One Way ANOVA F ratios were conducted. The t and the F ratios indicated that PL did not promote the academic achievement of the 1987-1988 second graders.
