This study investigated the extent of use of computer-based assisted instruction and computer managed instruction in teaching of business studies in junior public secondary schools of Anambra State. Two research questions and two null hypotheses guided the study. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. The population of the study consisted of 289 Business Studies teachers comprising 43 males and 246 females in the 262 junior public secondary schools in Anambra State. The entire population was studied because it is small and manageable. Computer-based Assisted and Computer Managed Instruction for Teaching Business Studies Questionnaire” (CACMTBSQ) designed by the researchers was employed as the instrument for data collection. The instruments were subjected to face validation. The reliability of the instrument were established using Cronbach Alpha. The result gave coefficient values of .78 for Computer-Based Assisted Instruction cluster, and 0.75 for Computer Managed Instruction cluster with overall coefficient value of 0.81. Data analysis was done using mean scores, standard deviation and t-test. The findings of the study revealed that computer-based assisted instruction and computer managed instruction are use in teaching of business studies in public junior secondary schools in Anambra State. The findings also revealed that: business studies teachers with 6 years teaching experience and above and those with less than 6 years teaching experience disagreed on the extent to which computer-based assisted instruction are used in teaching of business studies; male and female business studies teachers agreed on the extent to which computer managed instruction are used in teaching of business studies. The study concludes that computer managed instruction and computer-based assisted instruction are use in teaching of business studies in public junior secondary schools in Anambra State. The study recommends amongst others that workshops on innovative teaching strategies should be organized for business studies teachers annually to enable them update their knowledge and skills especially in the area of information and communication technology.
