The case study proposed in this article is the MELISSA project - Measuring E-Learning Impact in primary Schools in South African disadvantaged areas. MELISSA measures the impact of exposure to ICTs in teacher training/learning applying the Self-Efficacy construct. The intention is here to understand and analyse changes in attitudes to and uses of ICTs in term of Computer and Teacher Self-Efficacy. To accomplish this goal, the MELISSA team applied a mixed investigative method, merging quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
