Abstract: In determining the effect of computer assisted instructional method on students’ performance, two groups of student for a period of two semesters in the introduction to computer science and electronic data processing courses offered at the department of computer science, Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education were used as samples. One group was taught with conventional teaching method and the other with computer assisted instruction software package. As this was the first attempt in deploying CAI in teaching computer concepts in the department, it was primarily employed as educational means of teaching with CAI software. This paper reports a personal experience and a case study of implementing computer assisted instructional method and the effect it has on students’ performance in the course. Through hypotheses testing, it is clearly possible that employing computer assisted instructional method in educational settings proves to have significant effect on students’ performance.
