A survey of undergraduates found that common computer applications were used by 84 to 90 percent, and 89 percent believed their computer skills are adequate for professors' needs. About 25 percent considered themselves advanced computer users, and most had learned common applications informally. Differences existed between males and females in the use of specialized applications and self-ratings of proficiency. (EV)
