Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) on learning the skill of setting in volleyball. The participants were 32 high school students of first and second grade, aged 12-14yrs old, who were randomly assigned to one of two teaching method groups: a) traditional instruction (TI) and b) computer-assisted instruction. Each group received nine 40min periods of instruction, on successive separate days. The subjects in the TI group experienced the skill of setting through a series of progressive skills accompanied with drill and repetition of practice which were presented by an instructor. The CAI group experienced the skill of setting through a series of progressive skills accompanied with drill and repetition of practice which were presented by a multimedia program. At the beginning and at the end of this study the groups were given a 10-item multiple-choice knowledge test and a skill test. The results indicate that there were no significant differences between the TI and CAI groups with regards to the knowledge and skill tests. The results suggest that using multimedia technology as a teaching aid is as effective and as profitable at teaching skills as the traditional method.
