National Survey of Japanese Universities on IT Education - Overview of the Entire Project and Preliminary Analysis

Tetsuro Kakeshita

Abstract

We are conducting a national survey of Japanese universities on IT education under the support of Japanese Mistry of Education. This paper describes the overview of the survey project and preliminary analysis of the survey result. The survey is composed of five different types: (1) survey of IT education as a major field of study, (2) survey of IT education as a part of a major field other than IT, (3) survey of general IT education for college students belonging to all faculties, (4) survey of IT education for the students willing to have a licence to be a high school teacher on IT, (5) survey of computing environment for IT education. The survey contains various questions about outline of the educational program, educational contents and achievement level for independent topic, students, teaching staff, educational environment and future plan. We collected about 3,000 answers from 650 universities using a Web-based survey system. The survey covers 85% of the Japanese universities.
