Abstract

「医学用語」科目で実施した「タイピングテスト」の11年間の結果を元に,近年の医療福祉系短大生のタイピング能力の年次推移について検討した。その結果,2007年から2009年にかけて顕著なタイピング能力の向上が見られた。その後,2013年まではやや上昇傾向だったが,2014年にタイピング能力が大きく下降しており,この推移を他大学と比較したところ,類似した点が見られた。また,男女差を比較すると,2004年から2012年にかけて女性のタイピング能力が男性を上回っており,2013年から2014年にはほとんど差はなくなっている。さらに,年度ごとの分布をみると,年度によるタイピング能力の上昇とともに,分布の特徴が変化していた。これらのことから,学生のタイピング能力を高い水準で維持するためには,大学生の生活,学習環境の変化を十分に考慮し,時代に即した情報リテラシー教育の検討をする必要があることを確認した。We analyzed the results of typing tests (typing speed and accuracy tests) administered annually for 11 years to second-year students of the Department of Radiological Technology at Kawasaki College of Allied Health Professions, and discussed changes in their typing skills over these years. Their typing skills have shown a gradual improvement since the first year of the test. Particularly, there was a sharp rise between 2007 and 2009, but a significant decline in 2014. A similar pattern was revealed in another study. We also found a gender difference: female students showed a higher level in typing skills than male counterparts, especially between 2004 and 2012, although the difference was very small in 2013. From the result, we inferred that the students' typing ability had improved over 10 years because of the spread of computers. However, with the spread of smartphones among teenagers, typing ability has begun to decline. In order to ensure students' typing proficiency, it is necessary to develop information literacy education by considering changes in their life-patterns and learning environment.
