Abstract

The present task was undertaken to construct and standardize a test for measuring computer awareness of prospective secondary school teachers. For this, data were collected from prospective secondary school teachers by adopting random sampling technique. An item pool was created initially by consulting various sources and theoretical and empirical literature available in the concerned area. This item pool was put to evaluation and criticism by technical as well as language experts. The preliminary draft of computer awareness test was further subjected to item analysis to select only highly discriminating items. The reliability of test was established with the help of test-retest and split-half method which were found to be appreciably high. The validity of computer awareness test was ascertained and norms were established for interpretation of obtained scores on the test. In the last, conclusions have been presented and applicability and implications of computer awareness test have been discussed.
