Perceptions of the Nursing Faculty Towards the Development of eTest Generator

  1. 1. Asia  à  Philippines  à  Negros  Island  
  2. 2. Provincial  Capitol  of  Negros  Oriental   Dumaguete  City  Belfry   Dumaguete  City  Boulevard   Silliman  University’s  Gate  of  Opportunity   Assembly  Hall,  Silliman  University   Silliman  University  Luce  Auditorium  
  3. 3. Gereo  A.  Patrimonio,  RN   gpatrimonio88@gmail.com   MIS  Graduate  Program   Silliman  University   Dumaguete  City  6200   Philippines  
  4. 4. §  As  catalyzed  by  the  internaFonal  trend,  eLearning   in  the  Philippines  is  gaining  momentum.   §  Silliman  University’s  Strategic  Plan  for  SY  2008   -­‐2016  spelled  out  eLearning  curricular  integraFon   and  development  through  research.   §  Results  of  the  study  may  serve  as  Silliman   University’s  management  decision-­‐making  tool  in   realizing  their  strategic  plan.  
  5. 5. Ascertain  the  level  of  acceptance  for  an  eTest  Generator   by  answering  the  following  research  quesFons:   1.  What  is  the  level  of  perceived  usefulness  of  an  eTest   Generator  as  an  eLearning  tool?   2.  What  is  the  level  of  perceived  ease  of  use  of  an  eTest   Generator  as  an  eLearning  tool?   3.  Is  there  a  relaFonship  between  perceived  usefulness   and  perceived  ease  of  use  of  an  eTest  Generator  as  an   eLearning  tool?  
  6. 6. Ø  AXtude  paradigm  of  Fishbein  and  Ajzen:   1.  specifies  how  to  measure  the  behavior-­‐relevant   components  of  aXtudes,   2.  disFnguishes  between  beliefs  and  aXtudes,  and   3.  specifies  how  external  sFmuli  are  causally  linked  to   beliefs,  aXtudes,  and  behavior.   Ø  The  gap  between  success  in  informaFon  system  (IS)   and  its  users  can  be  bridged  by  determining  the   users’  level  of  acceptance  prior  to  the  development   and  implementaFon  of  the  IS  (Davis,  1993).  
  7. 7. Technology  Acceptance  Model  (TAM)  of  Fred  D.  Davis   Ø  ProspecFve  user’s  overall  aXtude  toward  using  a  given  system  is   hypothesized  to  be  a  major  determinant  of  whether  or  not  he/she  actually   uses  it.   Ø  AXtude  toward  using  (ATU)  is  a  funcFon  to  2  beliefs/cogniFve  responses:   1.  Perceived  usefulness  (PU)   2.  Perceived  ease  of  use  (PEU)  
  8. 8. Ø  DescripFve-­‐correlaFve  method   Ø  Survey  quesFonnaire   Ø  StaFsFcal  treatment  of  data   1.  2.  3.  Frequency  and  Percentage   Weighted  Means   Pearson  Product-­‐Moment  CorrelaFon  Coefficient   The  Likert  Scales  used  to  calibrate  respondents’  self-­‐assessment  
  9. 9. The  Subject:   SUCN  PopulaPon  DistribuPon  of  Faculty  and  AdministraPon  for  SY  2012-­‐2013   26  responded  to  the  survey  that  resulted  to  a   56.52%  response  rate  
  10. 10. Summary  of  Respondents’  Demography    
  11. 11. Weighted  Mean  DistribuPon  of  Respondents’  Self  Assessment    
  12. 12. Range  ComputaPon:    
  13. 13. The  Instrument:  (adapted  from  Davis,  1991)  
  14. 14. The  Instrument:  (adapted  from  Davis,  1991)   Test  for  Significance  of  the  RelaPonship  between  PU  and  PEU  
  15. 15. Answering  the  Research  QuesPons:   1.  What  is  the  level  of  perceived  usefulness  of  an  eTest  Generator  as  an  eLearning  tool   among  the  respondents?   With  a  high  weighted  mean  of  5.8,  the  respondents  perceived  eTest  as  a  useful   eLearning  tool  for  SUCN.   2.  What  is  the  level  of  perceived  ease  of  use  of  an  eTest  Generator  as  an  eLearning   tool  among  the  respondents?   With  a  high  weighted  mean  of  5.2,  the  respondents  perceived  eTest  Generator   as  somewhat  easy  to  use  as  an  eLearning  tool  for  SUCN.     3.  Is  there  a  relaFonship  between  the  perceived  usefulness  and  perceived  ease  of  use   of  an  eTest  Generator  as  an  eLearning  tool.   Using  Pearson  Product-­‐Moment  CorrelaGon  Coefficient,  with  (p-­‐value  =  0.0001)   <  (α  =  0.05),  the  data  provide  enough  evidence  that  there  is  a  significant   posiGve  relaGonship  between  the  two  variables  –  perceived  usefulness  and   perceived  ease  of  use.     In  general,  respondents  perceived  eTest  Generator  as  an  acceptable  eLearning  tool   because  it  is  useful  and  somewhat  easy  to  use  for  SUCN.    
  16. 16. ²  The   TAM   of   Davis   has   significantly   helped   the   researcher   ascertained   the   percepPon   level   among   the   faculty   and   administraPon   of   Silliman   University’s  College  of  Nursing  for  the  development   of   an   eTest   Generator   as   eLearning   tool   for   the   department.  
  17. 17. ²  Results   of   the   study   provided   useful   insights   that   Silliman   University’s   College   of   Nursing   will   accept   and   use   should   eTest   Generator   be   developed   and   deployed  as  an  eLearning  tool.  
  18. 18. ²  Highly   recommended   to   the   management   of   Silliman   University   that   eTest   Generator   be   developed   and   deployed   to   the   College   of   Nursing   for   the   use   of   its   faculty   and   administraPon   as   an   eLearning  tool.   ²  The   use   of   eTest   Generator   as   an   eLearning   tool   fosters   the   realizaPon   of   Silliman   University’s   strategic  plan.    
  19. 19. One  can  tell  how  important  something  is  today   by  measuring  its  poten>al  future  impact  on   every  organiza>on.     –  Dave  E.  Marcial,  PhD
