Abstract

This study investigated the computer literacy and Internet usage levels in a sample of 70 Form One students from a semi-urban school in the East-Coast State of Terengganu. The sample was randomly selected; there were 36 females and 34 males. All of them are Malays of low to moderate SES. The study also investigated whether if there existed a significant relationship between computer literacy level and Internet usage skills. Further, the researcher also found out whether SES level and gender have a bearing on the computer literacy level of the sample. The instrument distributed to the students was found to have a strong reliability with the Cronbach alpa of 0.777. Both the computer literacy and Internet usage levels of the sample were found to be satisfactorily high as indicated by the respective means. Correlation analysis was done to find out if there existed a significant relationship between computer literacy and Internet usage skills. It was found that a significant positive relationship exists between computer literacy and Internet usage (r = 0.003, p<0.05). Lastly the researcher used the comparison of means and T-testing to find out if income group or gender has a bearing on computer literacy of the sample. No significant difference in literacy level was found between the two genders or between the income groups.
