One objective of this study was to determine the extent and nature of the use of computers in accounting instruction in Saskatchewan high schools. Another objective was to identify some of the factors that influence the instructional use of computers. The study also explored relationships between teachers' instructional use of computers and their attitudes toward computers, self-efficacy with regard to computers, and experience with computers. Teachers' background and demographic profiles were also considered.
All Saskatchewan high school teachers who were teaching accounting in the 1999/2000 school year (as identified by Saskatchewan Education) were surveyed using a mail-out questionnaire. One hundred and thirty-three valid responses were received from the population of 214 accounting teachers (i.e., a 62.1% response rate).
Descriptive statistics were used to report results, and inferential methods were used to compare variables between different subgroups. Correlational techniques were used to evaluate the relationships between attitudes toward computers, computer self-efficacy, and computer use. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
