Computer Anxiety Considerations for Design of Introductory Computer Courses

Educational Research Quarterly Volume 11, Number 4,


Computer anxiety was studied in undergraduates without previous computer experience enrolled in an introductory course (N=111). About 33 percent had seriously high levels of computer anxiety. It may be advantageous to segregate initially anxious students into separate classes. (SLD)
