This study supplemented existing math instruction and drill and practice (flash cards and worksheets) with computer assisted drill and practice (CADP) to facilitate addition math fact attainment of first grade students. The six students selected were introduced to (CADP) on an individual basis using a multiple baseline across subjects research design. Timed tests were used to select subjects, as baseline measures, and as probes throughout the study to measure the students' rate correct per minute (the dependent variable).
All subjects showed an increase in their individual rate correct per minute after the introduction of CADP. This rate increase is important when considering the educational possibilities of using computer assisted drill and practice as a supplemental activity to increase the amount of student engaged time and thus increase the rate of student success.
