The Scientific and technological improvements that occur as a result of the race for the improvement of life standards between countries helps the education inevitably. The expectation of stableness of this occurrence of scientific and technological change on educational environment causes the use of different methods and techniques in education. Just like developed countries, there is a dramatic increase in use of Computer Aided Education Methods in our country. Computer Aided Education Method is often being used to measure difference in success in academic researches that establishes surveys and works on various experiment groups. Meta- analysis summarizes various studies on different fields and enables to achieve a common conclusion by combining the results. Therefore, Meta-Analysis is a method of combining the results of different studies. Aim of this research is to achieve an opinion about the use of Computer Aided Education Method in our Country by using Meta-Analysis. In this research, Meta-Analytic method that enables to calculate common effect sizes and to combine the results of similar studies was used. In this study, the most important result achieved by the meta-analysis is that the Computer Aided Education Method has a significant advantage as a method of teaching.
