Spencer, Laura K.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Alliant International University, San Diego
The problem: The problem addressed in this study was to examine how teacher attitudes towards software applications affect student achievement in the classroom. Method: A correlational study was conducted, and 50 fourth and fifth grade teachers who taught in the Santee School District, were administered a survey assessing their attitudes towards software applications in the classroom, and correlated with student achievement data. Results: The first hypothesis, which predicted a relationship between teacher attitudes towards software and student achievement, was positively supported. The second hypothesis, which predicted a relationship between teacher attitudes towards creativity software and student achievement, was not supported. The third hypothesis, which predicted a relationship between teacher attitudes towards productivity software and student achievement, was not supported.
