Wednesday, March 7 5:15 PM-6:45 PM Location: Capitol D
Abstract: This research reports the development of the Information Communications Technology Learning (ICTL) survey instrument which is designed to measure learner dispositions toward new preferences for learning and knowledge acquisition made available by information communication technology learning activities of the twenty-first century. Instrument development includes analysis for internal consistency reliability, principal components exploratory factor analysis, multidimensional scaling, and higher order factor analysis. The refinement process reveals two constructs with, respectively, very good and respectable measurement properties: Online Sharing (a= .83) and Information Seeking (a= .71). Research findings provide preliminary confirmation of the construct, content, and criterion related validity of the ICTL survey and confirm that the questionnaire should be considered worthy of further use.
