Lagos State University (NIGERIA)
This study was carried out to analyze commercial software available for science & mathematics instruction in Nigeria secondary schools. Adapting a software evaluation rubric, teachers and students from ten randomly selected secondary schools examined Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics Software available at Lagos Computer Village in Nigeria.
Data obtained was subjected to descriptive analysis to answer the various research questions of the study upon which the following conclusions were drawn among others; that the sampled CAI Software generally have adequate Content for Science and Mathematics Instruction, they are adequate in terms of ease of use and technical quality, but deficient in provision of support materials and illustrations relevant to the user environment. Appropriate recommendations put forward. It is hoped to initiate a collaboration to develop instructional software and train teachers to use them.
