Abstract

A computer-assisted instruction system is described in this paper, and the rationale for integrating this system into an occupational therapy course is discussed. Student performance in this course is apparently enhanced by using computer-assisted instruction. Attitudes of both students and faculty concerning the use of a computer for instruction are also discussed.
