An instrument for self-evaluation of students in using informing technology for learning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticles

Abstract

A web-based survey instrument was developed to measure the self-evaluated learning outcomes of Hong Kong students in terms of information technology (IT) proficiency, information literacy (IL) competence, and their perception of using IT for learning. One-hundred and forty primary and secondary schools and 12,235 students were randomly selected by a two-stage cluster sampling method to report on their skill levels of technology, knowledge of information processing using IT, and their beliefs about using IT for learning. The Cronbach’s Alpha Reliability coefficient of the survey is 0.953. The findings show that students were generally proficient in IT skills and aware of the social and ethical issues involved in using IT. The students also indicated their positive beliefs and confidence in the use of IT for learning. Copyright © 2007 Society of International Chinese in Educational Technology.
