Investigating the Attitudes of Diploma Students in Teaching Toward the Use of Electronic Assessment in Learning
The purpose of this study was to investigate and understand the attitudes of students enrolled in the Postgraduate Professional Diploma (PPD) program toward the use of electronic assessment. It also sought to clarify the relationship of their attitudes to gender, language, and computer proficiency. A survey questionnaire was used to collect data and investigate students’ attitudes. A total of 364 students (328 females and 36 males) participated in the survey. The findings of the study suggested the impact of language on attitude toward the use of the electronic assessment in learning. Although the results of the study indicated no significant gender differences, female participants were found in favor of the electronic assessment more than their male counterparts. Likewise, students with weak or good computer skills favored the electronic assessment more as compared to students with excellent, very good, or acceptable computer proficiency. The present study broadens our knowledge on students’ attitudes toward electronic assessment in relation to gender, language, and computer proficiency.
