  19. 19. VARIABLES OF THE STUDY I. Criterion Variables: • Current level of E-Skills Knowledge II. Background Variables: • Gender: Male and female • Types of institutions (Governmental /Private-aided / Private- Unaided) • Different types of subjects (Science / Art / Language) 20
  20. 20. Statistical Techniques Used for Analysis of Data • Descriptive statistics like Mean and Percentage have been employed to analyze the data descriptively. • Independent samples ‘t’ test, • one way ANOVA, • and DMRT (Duncan’s Multiple Range Test)
  21. 21. Findings A total of 374 Students were selected through Stratified Random Sampling of which 143 were Male Students (38.2%) and remaining 231 (61.8%) were Female Students.
  22. 22. 24 Skills Mean Rank Word Processing 1.84 3 Spread Sheets (Excel) 1.73 6 Data Bases (Access) 1.55 7 Email 1.86 2 Chat 1.83 4 PowerPoint 1.91 1 Search 1.78 5 Graphic Software 1.40 11 Statistical Software 1.36 12 Scanners 1.47 9 Digital Cameras 1.42 10 Web Browsers 1.54 8 LMS (Learning Management System) 1.21 14 LCMS ( Learning Content Management System) 1.27 13
  23. 23.  Among e-skills current knowledge, Maximum knowledge observed for PowerPoint (rank 1), followed by Email (rank 2), Word processing (rank 3), and Chat (rank 4) were observed, where Minimum knowledge was found for LCMS (rank 13), Statistical Software (rank 12), Graphic Software (Rank 11) and Digital Cameras (ranks 10).
  24. 24. Findings 26 A non-significant difference was observed on gender differentiation and types of colleges revealed that there was a non-significant difference between students in their mean e-skills knowledge scores. Analysis results showed that there is a significantly difference among students studying in different subjects (science / art / language) in their e-skills current knowledge levels
  25. 25. DMRT revealed that those students studying in arts and languages had least knowledge scores and those students who were studying in Science stream had highest scores and language students in between
  26. 26. EDUCATIONAL IMPLICATIONS Findings of this study reviled to students, faculty members ,management of B.Ed. Colleges and educators  to expand their own knowledge  and proficiency in  computer knowledge,  e-skills,  e-learning and  Internet technologies  and lead to more efficient utilization. 28
  27. 27. EDUCATIONAL IMPLICATIONS Based on the findings of Ranking and Hypothesis related to e-skills, Decision makers and Heads can decide for the planning and  Designing workshops and  Intensive courses for faculty members, based on demographic variables.
  28. 28. EDUCATIONAL IMPLICATIONS The findings in the present dissertation could also give Students a better idea of themselves, etc., and they could be encouraged to take measure that would diminish their weakness e-skills knowledge.
