Impact of Determinants on Student Performance towards Information Communication Technology in Higher Education

New teaching and learning techniques are developing day by day with the support of
information technology and the Internet. Many universities take the advantage of support of
information technologies on teaching and learning environments. Each individual’s physical,
mental and emotional skills are different. It is emphasized that, more importance are given to
individuals performances while they are in groups in those places where the traditional
teaching approaches is dominated. At this point, individual performance of individuals and
their different learning abilities could not be evaluated alone and left in the background. In
these places, it is also stated the importance of learning in groups but not individually. The
attitude of an individual towards the computer could be defined as a positive or negative view
of the individual on the computer technology or the computer-supported applications. In the
development of the attitude of the students, their personal characteristics, perception of
computers, frequency of their use of computers, their sex, age and previous experiences play an
important role. Some experts find it striking that when attitudes towards the computers are
investigated, the researchers are concentrated more on teachers and teachers-to-be, while
studies on establishing the attitude of students are limited in number. For that reason, this study
focuses on impact of determinants of student performance and evaluates this performance
through an exploratory research.
