Abstract

This study is carried out to identify whether students ofdifferent backgrounds
differ in their computer skills and at the same time to identify whether there is
a correlation between students' attitudes and their computer skills. Thefinal
objective of this study is to investigate which variable (background or
attitudes) has a greater influence on the students' computer skills. All the
Form Five students from the three different types ofschools in the Segamat
district were chosen as samples. T-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation and
regression analyses were used to analyze the data. The study showed that
there was a significant difference between the types ofschools the students
were in, students' computer ownership and the students' computer club
membership with their computer skills. In addition, the findings also revealed
that there was a significant correlation between the computer attitude
subscales with the students' computer skills. The multiple regression analysis
showed that there was a relationship between the students' computer
confidence, computer ownership, computer anxiety, school computer club
membership and type ofschools towardsthe students'computer skills. However,
we found that students' confidence in using the computer had a greater
influence than computer ownership and other characteristics.
