This study investigates whether students with different backgrounds and attitudes towards computers influence their levels of computer skills. All Form Five (GCE 'O' Level equivalent) students from three different types of schools in the rural district of Segamat, Malaysia were sampled. The t-test and ANOVA results show that there were significantly different influences of the types of schools they enrolled in, their computer ownership and computer club memberships on their computer skills. The findings also revealed significant correlation between the four computer attitude subscales and the students' computer skills. Suggestions are provided on how the students' level of computer skills could be improved.
