Di Mo, Yu Bai, Matthew Boswell, and Scott Rozelle

This study by Mo et al., looked at the factors that influence the effectiveness of ICT as an educational tool in China. Researchers found that a researcher-implemented computer-assisted learning programme for providing remedial English tutoring was more effective in improving student performance in English compared to a government-implemented programme. The study also concluded that a computer-assisted instruction programme that required teachers to provide instructions led to an improvement of English test scores, when compared to only providing the software without teaching support.
