Abstract

This study looked at the effect of both quantity and quality of computer use on achievement. The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2003 student survey comprising of 4,356 students (boys, n = 2,129; girls, n = 2,227) was used to predict academic achievement from quantity and quality of computer use while controlling for demographic differences. A weighted least squares hierarchical multiple regression approach was utilized. Both the quantity and quality of computer usage were found to be significant predictors of achievement. Implications were discussed.
