In recent years there has been increased development on individualized instruction and computer technology to facilitate learning at all levels of education and training. The application of CAL is one of the methods that support this activity. In view of this development, the research aims to evaluate the METKIT Educational Package on software engineering measurements, and make recommendations for update requirements, and propose suggestions for it to be use in course for distance learning. A CAL educational package has been developed for that purpose. The research has identified software measurements as a contributive factor towards the success or failure of a software project. The research has shown that the lack of objectivity in software measurements had resulted in project failures and over-runs. It is with this awareness that the software measurements should be promoted in course through the usage of individualized instruction and computer technology to facilitate learning. The CAL package has been recognized as one form of media for effective learning. The development of CAL courseware has been carefully planned out. Emphasis has been placed on the application of educational learning theory, and the inclusion of good designing features. The CAL package is then evaluated by conducting a test on a sample of the selected population.
