A Research Model Applied to a Secondary School Computer Project in Swaziland.
John, Martha Tyler; John, Floyd Idwal
The University of Swaziland was contacted to assist in evaluating the effectiveness of a computer training program at Waterford Kamhlaba, a secondary school in Swaziland. Two other secondary schools were selected as controls, and the evaluation of several variables was carried out with each of the schools' Form 1 students: (1) ideational fluency (a creativity measure); (2) attitudes; and (3) logical thinking skills. The effects of the computer course on each of these areas were examined. Students at Waterford scored significantly higher on a test of ideational fluency and showed significantly more positive attitudes toward computers than those in the control schools; however, no significant overall difference was found in logical thinking skills between the schools. Appendixes include samples of ideational fluency and semantic differential tests used in the study and tables of test results. (24 references) (GL)
