Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) offers the potential to deliver cognitive and meta-cognitive strategies in mathematical word problem-solving for students with mathematics difficulties. However, there is a lack of commercially available CAI programs with cognitive and meta-cognitive strategies for mathematical word problem-solving that pay particular attention to the critical design features for students with mathematics difficulties. Therefore, empirical evidence regarding the effects of CAI program with cognitive and meta-cognitive strategies on the word problem-solving of students with mathematics difficulties has not been found.Thirty elementary students with LD randomly assigned to one of three tutorial CAI conditions: (a) seven-step word problem-solving strategy plus animation (CAI-A); (b) seven-step word problem-solving strategy plus static picture (CAI-P); andanbsp;...
