This study examines the current state of Internet usage among Information Technology Management (ITM) students at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). ITM students are the Department of Defense (DoD) Information Technology (IT) experts of tomorrow. Their ability to use the Internet is an integral part of their future job performance. This study uses direct observation to determine ITM students' ability level in performing basic Internet tasks. The results of these observations are used to show trends and changes in ability, between ITM sections. These trends are used to draw conclusions as to the methods and sources current used to instruct ITM students in Internet usage. This study showed a need for more formalized Internet instruction at NPS. Recommendations are made for both tutorials and classroom instruction. Future research into the effectiveness of new instructional methods is also recommended. These results and recommendations are applicable for export to all DoD Internet users.
