Abstract

Computational thinking is a strategy of thinking to tackle complex problems. There is a paucity of conceptualization and instruments that cogitate on computational thinking disposition and attitudes. This study reacts to these constraints by establishing an instrument to test computational thinking related dispositions and attitudes. The computational thinking disposition Instrument is an indicator of student’s disposition towards computational thinking in daily life. The objective of this study is to investigate the psychometric features using Rasch model. Data of 535 form four computer science students in Malaysia were obtained. Instrument consists of 55 core measures in three domains: cognitive, affective and conative. The Rasch analysis indicated good psychometric features of the instrument. In these three domains no items showed disordered thresholds and the reliability was good. As a result, the Rasch analysis provides basis for cautious optimism permitting more detailed and finer level investigation of the instrument.
