Four-year colleges and universities have invested time, faculty, floor space, and monies for software and hardware in teaching introductory courses in Management Information Systems (MIS). Do these resources increase the level of computer literacy (hiformation fundamentals)? This paper reports on the before and after results of a questionnaire on computer literacy given to 143 students taking an introductory MIS course. Differences in the amount of learning are analyzed from the perspective of a variety of demographic factors (age, gender, typing skills, and computer access) and Kolb's Learning Styles Inventory (KLSI).
