Test of e-Learning Related Attitudes (TeLRA) Scale: Development, Reliability and Validity Study
Kisanga, D. H.; Ireson, G.
International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v12 n1 p20-36 2016
The Tanzanian education system is in transition from face-to-face classroom learning to e-learning. E-learning is a new learning approach in Tanzanian Higher Learning Institutions [HLIs] and with teachers being the key stakeholders of all formal education, investigating their attitude towards e-learning is essential. So far, however, there has been little consideration given to research that examines teachers' attitudes towards e-learning in Tanzanian HLIs and consequently, there is no standard attitude scale that has been developed to measure this. This paper presents the development and validation of a scale of teachers' attitude to e-learning. Whilst being initially developed to assess the attitude of teachers in HLIs the authors belief, having piloted with pre-service trainee teachers in England that the scale transfers across national boundaries. The final instrument contains 36 items with a Cronbach alpha score of 0.857. Although the developed attitude scale was intended for use in HLIs, it can also be of interest to researchers investigating attitudes on other sectors.
