Abstract
The present research paper is a comparative study between Omani and Iranian students to find out the status of the usage of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) among Omani and Iranian fourth-grade students who participated in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in 2015. The statistical samples have been selected from all Omani and Iranian fourth-grade students who participated in the TIMSS 2015 assessment. The research design followed a secondary analysis approach and the cluster sampling method was applied for sampling purposes. There were 9105 (4524 girls; 4581 boys) and 3823 (1863 girls; 1960 boys) from Oman and Iran respectively that have been selected as statistical samples. The findings revealed that Omani and Iranian students' ICT usage status was low. However, Omani students’ ICT usage status (M=29.67, SD=1.17) showed a greater portion than Iranian students’ (M=14.76, SD=5.39). Furthermore, Omani and Iranian boys’ ICT usage status was greater than girls. Consequently, a significant relationship between students' access to ICT facilities with their achievement rate was found for both Iranian and Omani students (Oman: r=0.022, sig=<0.05; Iran: r=0.210, sig=<0.01).
