General Education Courses at the University of Botswana: Application of the Theory of Reasoned Action in Measuring Course Outcomes
Garg, Deepti; Garg, Ajay K.
Journal of General Education, v56 n3-4 p252-277 2007
This study applied the Theory of Reasoned Action and the Technology Acceptance Model to measure outcomes of general education courses (GECs) under the University of Botswana Computer and Information Skills (CIS) program. An exploratory model was validated for responses from 298 students. The results suggest that resources currently committed to general education courses should continue to be invested, as they affect the perceived benefits, which in turn affect the behavior of students. The study also found that students perceive the various objectives of CIS GECs as being met. These results have implications for course design and resource utilization.
