Design and validation of an instrument to measure teacher training profiles in information and communication technologies
Introduction: this study is part of a research project concerning the teacher training in information and communication technologies (ICT) profile. Its aim is to develop and validate an instrument for measuring this profile in primary and secondary schools. Methodology: after developing the instrument and administering it to a sample of 1,433 teachers in the Community of Madrid, its reliability, content, and construct validity were analysed (the latter using Structural
Equation Models with the IBM SPSS-AMOS program). Results: the reliability analysis gave Cronbach’s Alpha = 0.973 for the whole of the instrument. For each dimension this figure was: Curricular Aspects, 0.738; Planning and Evaluation, 0.878; Methodological Aspects, 0.903; Use of ICT, 0.935; and ICT Training, 0.894. The discrimination coefficient values of the final instrument items ranged from 0.33 to 0.74. The Confirmatory Factor Analysis demonstrates a good fit of the model to the data (CMIN/DF = 5,138; CFI = 0,905; RMSEA = 0,056; PRATIO = 0,928). Conclusions: this instrument has therefore shown that it has the necessary technical characteristics to be considered a valid and trustworthy tool for measuring the teacher training profile in ICT.
