The purpose of the research was to determine if there was a relationship between attitudes toward computers and knowledge of computers. Questionnaires were sent to the 52 health education teachers in the Dallas Independent School District . Of these, 26 responded by completing and by returning a questionnaire. The questionnaire consisted of a demographic section, two attitude sections (attitude 1 and attitude 2), and a knowledge section. The data were analyzed using BMDP statistical package and included descriptive statistics. The null hypothesis was tested at a .05 level of significance using Spearman's coefficient of correlation. Additionally, a Spearman's rho matrix was developed in order to determine if there was a relationship between demographic variables and section totals. The calculated correlation coefficient for the relationship between attitude 1 and knowledge was -.65 and for the relationship between attitude 2 and knowledge was -.166. Therefore, the null hypothesis was retained.
