The aim of this research is to investigate the impacts of Computer-assisted Art Criticism Course on the academic achievement of undergraduate art students. With this study, animations containing work analysis as educational material for computer-assisted instruction were prepared and teaching activities were carried out with two different student groups. In this research, experimental and control groups were formed on a total of 70 students who took third grade "Art Criticism” course in Gazi University Gazi Faculty of Fine Arts Department of Art Education. In order to measure students' achievement, a 20-question multiple choice “achievement test" was applied by the researcher. The method used by the instructor was applied one of the student groups, while the computer-assisted instruction was applied the other. Then students' achievements were examined in terms of the methods used as a result of the application. In the research, t-test was used to determine the achievement scores and the research was carried out on the design with a pretest-posttest control group. It was found that the academic achievement of the students who participated in the Computer-Asissted Instruction applications within the scope of the research increased significantly compared to the academic achievement of the students who participated in the method used by the instructor, and it was found that the operations performed in the experimental group were more effective than the operations performed in the control group.
