Computer is the most significant and pervasive technological innovation of contemporary world and is certainly the eighth wonder of the world. Main purpose of the study was to determine the effectiveness of computer assisted instruction (CAI) for distance learners. It was an experimental study and 120 (M=60+FM=60) students of class XII (Pre-engineering) were taken as a sample of the study. For comparison purpose these 120 students were divided into two equal groups. 60 ((M=30+FM=30) students were assigned to experimental group and 60 (M=30+FM=30) to control group. Effectiveness of this technology was assessed in the concepts and skills of sets and matrices, by an objective type test consisting of 100 multiple-choice questions. Marks achieved by the students of experimental group and control group were analyzed through SPSS XVII by running percentages, mean scores and t-test formulas. Main findings of the study revealed that there was a significant difference between the students of both groups. Students taught through computer assisted instruction showed better results than their traditionally taught counterparts. They showed better performance in knowledge, understanding and application level either in non text based or lower and higher level text questions.
