One reply on “Dr Simon Cassidy”

Hi..I want to use the Computer User Confidence Scale that you developed with Dr. Eachus. I am doing a Phenomenological dissertation on pre-service and in-service training of teachers in technology incorporation. In addition I am asking participants about their feelings of self-efficacy related to technology integration. The survey is to triangulate the results I am getting from the interviews and the focus group sessions.
I am having difficulty retrieving the article you had published– Developing the Computer Self-Efficacy (CSE) Scale: Investigating the Relationship Between CSE, Gender and Experience with Computers–Liberty University’s online library has access to volume 3 and up..this article appeared in volume 2 of that publication.
I am going to check at a local college to see if they have the article for download.

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer me.
