Computer Anxiety and Student Teachers: Interrelationships between Computer Anxiety, Demographic Variables and an Intervention Strategy.
McInerney, Valentina; And Others – 1990
This study examined the effects of increased computing experience on the computer anxiety of 101 first year preservice teacher education students at a regional university in Australia. Three instruments measuring computer anxiety and attitudes--the Computer Anxiety Rating Scale (CARS), Attitudes Towards Computers Scale (ATCS), and Computer…

Students' Attitudes towards Cooperative, Self-Regulated Learning versus Teacher Directed Instruction in a Computer Training Course: A Qualitative Study.
McInerney, Valentina; And Others – 1996
This research seeks to find the most effective mode of instruction which can assist undergraduate students in gaining initial computing skills while alleviating anxiety by contrasting a traditional direct teaching approach with one that emphasizes self-regulation within a cooperative learning context. Specifically, the study compares the…

The Designing of CALM (Computer Anxiety and Learning Measure): Validation of a Multidimensional Measure of Anxiety and Cognitions Relating to Adult Learning of Computing Skills Using Structural Equation Modeling.
McInerney, Valentina; Marsh, Herbert W.; McInerney, Dennis M. – 1998
This paper discusses the process through which a powerful multidimensional measure of affect and cognition in relation to adult learning of computing skills was derived from its early theoretical stages to its validation using structural equation modeling. The discussion emphasizes the importance of ensuring a strong substantive base from which to…

Effects of Metacognitive Strategy Training within a Cooperative Group Learning Context on Computer Achievement and Anxiety: An Aptitude-Treatment Interaction Study.
McInerney, Valentina; McInerney, Dennis M.; Marsh, Herbert W. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 1997
Two aptitude-treatment interaction studies involving 61 college students examined comparative effects of metacognitive strategy training in self-questioning within cooperative group learning and traditional direct instruction on the acquisition of computing competence, learning anxiety, and positive cognition. Results support including cooperative…

The Designing of the Computer Anxiety and Learning Measure (CALM): Validation of Scores on a Multidimensional Measure of Anxiety and Cognitions Relating to Adult Learning of Computing Skills Using Structural Equation Modeling.
McInerney, Valentina; Marsh, Herbert W.; McInerney, Dennis M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Developed a multidimensional measure of affect and cognition in relation to adult learning of computing skills, the Computer Anxiety and Learning Measure (CALM). Results from 794 Australian undergraduates support the validity and reliability of the CALM with this population, although whether the measure is invariant across different adult…
