The study investigated the motivational effects of computer technology on writing instruction and performance of 5th-grade students. The participants (students and instructors) were engaged in preparatory sessions to take the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) test. Questionnaires on instructor observations and attitudes toward computer usage were administered. Instructor's responses indicate an increase in motivation and writing length for student's who integrated computers into the writing process. Instructors also share the difficulties faced by students with computer literacy issues and also the positive results shown by almost all of the participants. The study notes that students were motivated by computer technology along with other factors like teacher participation, extra-curricular instruction and personalized assistance.
