Shamsa Aziz and Hamid Hassan
Abstract—To assess students’ knowledge about computers and to explore the factors affecting the computers’ knowledge a test was constructed, validated and pilot tested. Item analysis was carried out by calculating Difficulty Index and Discrimination Power. Revised version of the test was administered on 1068 students of ICS. Findings showed that gender, personal computers, physical facilities and teachers’ qualification effect students’ knowledge. It is recommended that better physical facilities and well trained teachers may be provided in the colleges.

Index Terms—Computer science, students knowledge about computers, assessment.
