Evidence Supporting the Validity of Inferences Required by the Intended Uses of the Technology Integration Confidence Scale Evidence Supporting the Validity of Inferences Required by the Intended Uses of the Technology Integration Confidence Scale
The purpose of this dissertation was to gather evidence supporting the inferences required for each of the TICSâ€™ intended purposes, drawing on modern validity theory and codified testing standards, and employing state-of-the-art measurement methodology. Methods used to gather validity-supporting evidence included repeated measures ANOVA, regression analyses, and a synthesis of self-efficacy research. Evidence supported the use of the TICS to establish a baseline preservice teacher profile and to predict in-course preservice teacher performance, but only in the secondary education technology integration course. The evidence did not support using the TICS to monitor minor changes to the curriculum.
