Abstract:

This study attempts to evaluate the CALL software package, 'Using and Understanding English Grammar' (UUEG). This evaluation will be carried out using the judgmental perspective suggested by Chapelle (2001). The revolution of technology has started to invade classrooms and as the hard copy of the book is widely used in Saudi Arabia (including the author) an evaluation of its soft copy will inform us of the usefulness (or otherwise) of this software. The application of the software in the authorís context did not have much of great influence in studentsí achievement; the total scores of students, when analyzed by t-test, were significantly different though. It also affected their learning motivation, excitement and attendance. However, it must be taken into consideration that pedagogical objectives, learnersí differences, learning styles and strategies and teachersí own styles and expertise all vary from context to context and accordingly the value of all CALL software will be context dependent any may not necessarily lead to success.
