Computers are increasingly prevalent in everyday life with development of constantly evolving new designs to benefit the “average person”. These advances have resulted in diverse ways of measuring a person’s level of computer experience, compared to the relatively simple measures of yesteryear. This diverseness however also brings a dilution of validity. Comparisons of the use of multiple measures resulted in significantly different findings in Tan and Richardson (2005), giving rise to questions about the suitability of each measure. This study identifies current measures from literature and explores the suitability of each measure, then initiates the development of a unified computer experience measure.
