Survey and Online reading tests

Just finished the expanded version of my research plan and I will discuss this with my university tutor dr Amber Walraven at the end of this week. Then we will take the next steps.
I also have to talk to the  people who gave me grants to get money for the next year. This is the least pleasant task.

This year I will design and do a survey in which I ask teachers about their knowledge, attitudes and  classroom practice related to Digital Literacy. The teacher will be one of the variables I will look at when I try to understand the Digital Literacy of secondary school students. Will talk more in detail about this later.
Request: do you know of any valid and usable instruments I could look at or use? Please let me know.

The other thing I’m working on is designing and / or  choosing an instrument to measure digital literacy of secondary school students. I would like to test my  students at the end 2012 or beginning 2013.  After that I will relate this test to their scores on a standard reading comprehension test.

Julie Coiro, Donald Leu and colleagues have already designed and tested an interesting instrument, ORCA.  I have contact with Julie Coiro on this. She was very helpful in providing me with recent articles and ORCA materials . See  Coiro and Kennedey (2011) for more information.  I will look at the ORCA instruments carefully.
But I will look at  the PISA 2006 instrument too. I am interested in the differences and similarities of ORCA and PISA, in able to decide what is most useful for me. I contacted some people from PISA but it seems to be much more difficult to get more detailed information on that. Help is welcome.

  1. Hi Jeroen, how are you defining ‘digital literacy’?

  2. Hi Doug Reading your thesis your question ‘ Hi Jeroen, how are you defining ‘digital literacy’ is very hard to answer. I will take a stand in this soon. ;-)
