Maylin Yen

Abstract


This study investigated the basic information ability required of college students to be employable in the information technology-centered industrial environment. The researcher interviewed department heads at the National Hsinchu University of Education as well as computer cram school instructors and human resource managers to identify the information abilities expected of students. These preliminary indicators were then revised into a five-major information ability dimension 58-item “Indicators of college students’ basic information ability for employability” by administering the three-round Delphi method survey to 17 managers in the public and private sector as well as industry experts throughout Taiwan. These indicators were then provided to college students from 17 colleges associated with regional information centers in Taoyuan, Hsinchu, and Miaoli for self-assessment. A total of 2, 379 effective questionnaires were collected. The “Indicators of college students’ basic information ability for employability” can be used by relevant universities to help students improve information related abilities.
