Assessment of Competencies in Technology Operation and Concepts among Teachers in a Philippine State University


Being prepared to use technology and knowing how that technology can support student learning have become integral skills in every teacher’s professional repertoire. This study aimed to assess the level of information and communications technology competencies of teachers in higher education, particularly in the technology operations and concepts skills. The study utilized the descriptive design which involved a questionnaire adopted from the National ICT Competency Standard for Teachers. Using the sample size estimation formula for a finite population, 104 teachers in a state university in the Philippines were considered respondents of the study. Responses from the questionnaires were directly encoded and analyzed using the Microsoft Excel application using descriptive statistics such as frequency counts, percentage, and mean. Based on the results, teachers reported a basic competency in understanding and the effective use of the internet and network applications and resources. Also, teachers show a basic competency level in demonstrating knowledge and skills in information and data management. Moreover, teachers reported being proficient in demonstrating knowledge and skills in basic computer operation and other information devices, including basic troubleshooting and maintenance and the use of office and teaching productivity tools. Training can be provided to teachers on technology operations and concepts to further advance their skills and competence which can be applied in their teaching and learning process.
