The intent of this study was to determine if there was a difference in student performance when word problems or mathematical problem-solving skills are taught the traditional way or when students are taught through Computer Assisted Instruction, CAI. Ninety students in grades 9 through 12 participated in this study. The Stanford Test of Academic Skills, TASK, was administered for pre- and posttesting. No significant differences in achievement were found.
