Teacher Education and Structural Equation Modelling

A couple of interesting papers in the most recent release of Computers and Education:

An assessment of the influence of perceived enjoyment and attitude on the intention to use technology among pre-service teachers: A structural equation modelling approach Original Research Article
Computers & Education, In Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available online 10 March 2011
Timothy Teo, Jan Noyes

A Framework for Teachers’ Integration of ICT into their Classroom Practice Original Research Article
Computers & Education, In Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available online 8 March 2011
Dermot Donnelly, Oliver McGarr, John O’Reilly

Note that the latter paper includes citations to the following references:

  • Cheung, G. W., & Rensvold, R. B. (2002). Evaluating goodness-of-fit indexes for
    testing measurement invariance. Structural Equation Modeling, 9, 233-255.
  • Kline, R. B. (2005). Principles and practice of structural equation modeling (2nd ed.). New York: Guilford Press.
  • Hair, J. F. Jr., Black, W. C., Babin, B. J., Anderson, R. E., & Tatham, R. L. (2006).
    Multivariate data analysis (6th ed.). New Jersey: Prentice-Hall International.

These looks like great texts in terms of performing attribution analysis from student survey responses. The following was also cited, which looks highly relevant to the Teaching Teachers of the Future project:

  • Anderson, S. E. & Maninger, R. M. (2007). Preservice teachers’ abilities, beliefs, and intentions regarding technology integration. Journal of Educational Computing Research, 37(2), 151-172.
