Abstract

This work studies whether ICT use predict mathematical performance in 15-year-old students in Korea or not. Data used is from PISA 2015. The multi-level models are used. The results show four findings: First, the more students use ICT for school assignments, the higher their mathematical performance is. Second, ICT use for communication out of school has negative effects on mathematical performance. Third, ICT use at school and in class was found to generally have negative effects on mathematics. Finally, students who clearly recognize the limits of computer tend to have high mathematical performance. The limitations of the study and a few directions of the further study are discussed.
