Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of computer-assistance during systematic observation on the attitudes of pre-service teachers towards systematic observation and on the time required to analyze the data gathered. During their field experience, pre-service teachers were randomly assigned to conduct systematic observation in a computer-assisted group or traditional ‘pencil and paper’ group. Results indicated that pre-service teachers who used computer-assisted systematic observation required significantly (alpha = 0.01) less time to perform quantitative analysis. The data also revealed several significant differences in attitudes between the pre-service teachers who used computers and those who used the traditional ‘pencil and paper’ methods of systematic observation.
