Abstract

This study was conducted to determine if statistically significant differences existed between the perception and performance abilities of teacher candidates (n=79) at a southeastern university. Two instruments were used, the Basic Computer Skills Performance-Based Assessment instrument and the Basic Computer Skill Self-Reported Survey,aligned with the objectives of two nationally recognized instruments: The ISTE On-line Technology Assessment, and courseware objectives for preparation for the Internet and Computer Core Certification. Statistically significant differences between a teacher candidate’s perception and performance were found in all sub-categories. Teacher candidates mean score indicated satisfactory performance in the Basic Operation and Concept category (M=1.92) and unsatisfactory performance in Technology Problem Solving and Decision-Making Tools category (M=1.37).
