Effects of Cooperative Learning and Computer-assisted Language Learning (CALL) on the Performance of Cloze Procedure
Victoria Sim-Cheung TAO & Choi-Man CHUNG（Victoria Sim-Cheung TAO、鍾財文）
This study attempts to examine the effectiveness of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and cooperative learning in the performance of cloze procedure. The CALL and cooperative learning are compared to the traditional worksheet and individualistic learning. Fifty eight Middle Six students were trained under four different learning conditions (1) individualistic learning with worksheets, (2) individualistic learning with the computer, (3) cooperative learning with worksheets, and (4) cooperative learning with the computer and underwent cloze procedure practices on two text structures narrative and expository. An immediate post-test and a delayed retention test were given respectively.
No significant result was found on the post-test scores among all groups. However, in the retention test, it was found that the cooperative learning group performed significantly better than the individualistic learning group, and the computer group out-performed significantly those with worksheets in the individualistic learning group. Implications of these results were discussed.
