Assessment of Computer Literacy of Secondary School Teachers in Ekiti State, Nigeria
Oluwatayo, James Ayodele
Journal of International Education Research, v8 n2 p97-104 2012
The study assessed computer literacy of secondary school teachers in Ekiti State. Three hundred teachers (Male = 150; Female = 150) selected from 30 public schools in 15 out of 16 local government areas participated. The instrument for collecting data was a 25-item Self-Assessment of Computer Literacy questionnaire and each item was rated on a four-point scale ( Very High, High, Low and Very Low). The reliability coefficient of the instrument was estimated at 0.72 using Cronbach-alpha. Data were analysed using quartile range, frequency counts, percentages, t-test and one-way ANOVA tested at 0.05 level of significance. Results show that teachers' computer literacy was low, sex and location had no significant influence on teachers' computer literacy, and experience had significant influence with the less experienced teachers having higher computer literacy than their average and high-experienced counterparts. It was suggested that regular workshops/seminars be organised for teachers to acquire desirable skills in computers for realisation of the objectives of computer education in Nigeria.
