Type of paper: Refereed paper

Link linked data from statements in the classroom learning environment and information and communications technology (ICT) learning were collected using to Rasch model instruments. Structural equation modelling was applied to test for dependency between learning environment and ICT learning variables. The paper reports on the fit of data to the Rasch Rating scale Model and also on fit to a structural model developed by latent variable path analysis (LISEL). Findings showed ICT learning variables were dependent on classroom learning environment variables.
