Assessment of Digital Literacy Skills Among Physical and Health Education Students in Secondary Schools in Bayelsa State


This study assessed digital literacy skills among physical and health education students in secondary schools in Bayelsa State, Nigeria. A descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. To direct the study, two research questions were developed along with matching null hypotheses. All PHE students in the 192 secondary schools in Bayelsa state that are owned by the government make up the study population. The research sample consisted of 499 PHE students, 240 of whom were male and 249 of whom were female. The “Digital Literacy Skill Questionnaire (DLSQ),” a structured tool created by researcher and approved by specialists, was used to collect data. The Cronbach Alpha formula was used to determine the instrument’s reliability, and a coefficient of 0.84 was found. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the study questions, and t-test statistics were used to assess the hypotheses. The findings showed that Bayelsa State secondary school PHE students do not use their digital literacy skills to a high degree. It was suggested that PHE students be encouraged to develop their digital abilities by the school administration.
