Abstract

Children in schools should possess sufficient Information and Communication Technology (ICT) literacy skills so that they can confidently use computers as a learning tool. Lack of the ICT literacy skills would hinder children from getting maximum benefits despite massive spending by the government in the educational sector. This paper has two objectives. First, it reviews the literature on the common practices of assessing students°« ICT literacy level. Second, it attempts to highlight the potential of the applicability of log file analysis as a tool to assess ICT literacy skill. In this pilot study involving nine school children, the researchers investigated whether the children who own electronic books(e-books) have adequate ICT literacy skill. The log file analysis allows the classification of their expertise into beginner, intermediate or expert based on the response time of completing the given tasks. This paper reported a promising approach in using the log file analysis. It is hoped that more research will be undertaken that exploit the benefits of log file analysis as a tool to assess ICT literacy skills among the Malaysian citizen.
