Abstract

Objectives: This research was carried out with the aim of examining computer anxiety in students and its relationship with computer self-efficacy in Arak University.

Method: This study is a descriptive research in which 370 students of different fields in Arak University (123 males, 218 females) which were selected using random cluster sampling method, were examined. Data were gathered using computer anxiety classification measure and computer self-efficacy measure. Statistical regression, Pearson's correlation and t-test were used for data analysis .

Results: Arak University students had a higher degree of anxiety than the low level. There was a significant relation between computer anxiety and computer self-efficacy (p<0.01). Among the individual variables (sex, major field, scores mean) only major field had a significant effect on predicting the basic variable (computer anxiety) (p<0.001). Also, there was no significant difference between the scores mean of computer anxiety of boys and girls, but a difference was found regarding computer self-efficacy (p<0.001).

Conclusion: Computer anxiety is high in Arak University students. Necessary attention and action should be carried out to reduce computer anxiety in students.
