Abstract

Computer technology is infiltrating the society at such a rapid rate that knowledge in this area has become mandatory. This study will attempt to find out if there is significant difference between computer literacy and the following: gender, age, and ethnicity. The result of this study will be significant for career planning for the graduate students. It will also enhance their knowledge about computer literacy, as it relates to the education of graduate students.

The target population consisted of Graduate students in selected urban universities. Urban universities were clustered according to area, and an area was randomly selected. A department was also randomly selected from among those that do not directly deal with computers. Phone calls were made to find out the proper chain of command, and contact person. Approval was requested from urban universities through phone call to secure appointment. Letters of interest were mailed to these institutions as a reminder. The nature of the research was explained, and the date established on which to deliver the questionnaires. The questionnaires were delivered in person to the selected urban universities through the dean's office. Conclusions and recommendations were made based on the findings of the study. There was a significant difference between computer literacy and all the variables used.
