    This paper examines how computer-assisted instruction affects students. The use of computer-generated slide presentations in an introductory economics course is examined for potential effects on student performance, student attitudes, and the evaluations of the instructor. Multiple sections of Introductory Economics are used to determine if the use of computer-generated slide presentations has any effect on students in the areas listed above. Control variables used are student ability, gender, classification, and prior exposure to economics. The results indicate that the use of computer-generated slide presentations has no effect on student performance, attitudes, or evaluation of the instructor.
