Post Graduate Students' Computing Confidence, Computer and Internet Usage at Kuvempu University--An Indian Study
Dange, Jagannath K.
Online Submission, International Journal of Instruction v3 n2 p39-62 Jul 2011
There is a common belief that students entering Post Graduation have appropriate computing skills for study purposes and there is no longer a felt need for computer training programmes in tertiary education. First year students of Post Graduation were surveyed in 2009, they were asked about their Education and Computing backgrounds. Further, the elaboration of issues raised was gathered through focused interviews. Collected data was then analyzed through the percentage analysis. Nowadays Indian regional students have higher confidence in their Computing abilities. One clear reason as it appears, the increased access to Computers and the Internet confidence. They are also likely to contradict Knowledge and Confidence. Surprisingly, the survey results showed high usage extent of Computer Training Programmes. Therefore, the revoking of Computer Training Programmes for all P.G courses with Indian educational standards is not recommended. Appended to this document are: (1) Student Background Survey (Computing Competence and Confidence Tool); and (2) Framework for Questions Asked in Student Interviews. (Contains 9 graphs and 9 tables.)
