Abstract

This paper describes an instrument that was used for collecting data for a study that aimed at investigating the nature of beginning and veteran Office Data Processing (ODP) teachers’ Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) in the use of Information and Communication Technology(ICT) tools in Further Education and Training (FET) colleges in South Africa. The paper describes process of development of the survey instrument. It presents result from a pilot study involving 107 beginning and veteran ODP teachers. The test for internal consistency based upon Cronbach’s alpha indicates that the modification and adaptation process of the survey instrument is reliable and valid for collecting data relevant to the study and to other studies that intend to describe the nature of teachers TPACK in ICT-based classrooms.
