|This study was designed to assess the influence of gender and institutional type on the use of a Computer-Assisted Instructional (CAI) package for teaching Metalwork Technology (MWT) at the Nigerian Certificate in Education (Technical) level. Two research questions and two research hypotheses were formulated to guide the study at 0.05 level of significance. The study used the post- test only type of experimental research design. One hundred and forty students of 200 level NCE (Technical) programme were used as respondents in the study from the six participating institutions in the North-Central geo- political zone of the country. A pilot study was conducted in the study. The data obtained from the pilot study were used to establish the reliability of the research instrument (r=0.89) and conduct item analysis of facility index and discrimination index of the test. The subjects were taught MWT using CAI package and administered with MWTAT as post- test. The data from the post-test were analyzed using the mean to answer the two research questions and t-test statistics to test the two hypotheses in the study. The study found that, female students performed better than their male counterparts and students in the Polytechnics performed better than those in the Colleges of Education respectively. The study also revealed that, there were no significant differences in the performances of male and female students (t-value=0.83) and between those in the Polytechnics and the Colleges of Education taught MWT with CAI package (t-value=0.08). The study was concluded that, both gender and institutional type does not have influence on the academic performances of students taught MWT with CAI package. Some recommendations made in the study were, institutions offering NCE (Technical) programme should have well equipped computer centers for teaching and learning and should use CAI package for teaching and testing students.
