Information Technology Implementation in Business Education Courses Compared to National Standards
Skinner, Leane B.; White, Bonnie J.
Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, v46 n3 p169-183 Fall 2004
This study was designed to determine the degree to which the National Business Education Association's Information Technology Standards, as presented in the National Standards for Business Education (2nd ed.), have been implemented in Alabama business education courses. Alabama business education teachers were surveyed to determine the degree of perceived competency to teach standards, degree of implementation of standards, factors preventing implementation of standards, and preferred methods and scheduling for professional development. In nine of the 16 identified standards, teachers reported having only "basic" or "no" perceived competency to teach standards. A positive significant correlation, however, occurred between the degree of implementation and the perceived degree of competency to teach the standards. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.
