Abstract: This paper shows the ways in which computer-based, drill-and-kill practice provided short- and possibly long-term benefits to Latino children who were using it as part of their weekly computer instruction. Findings suggest that, while some may consider DK practice simply an extension of the kind of DK being used in classrooms for test preparation, these data show that such use may provide promising results for this specific population, especially if these are incorporated into these children’s daily in class instruction.
