Beal, Jack L.; And Others
This report presents the results of a spring 1982 survey of a random sample of Washington public schools which separated findings according to school level (elementary, middle, junior high, or high school) and district size (either less than or greater than 2,000 enrollment). A brief review of previous studies and a description of the survey procedures are followed by the findings for each of the 15 topics addressed by the survey: (1) percentage of schools using computers; (2) rotation of computers among schools; (3) number of computers in individual schools; (4) hours per week each computer is used; (5) brands and types of computers; (6) ways computers are used; (7) use of software in the classroom; (8) subject areas using software; (9) software sources; (10) peripherals used; (11) percent of staff using computers; (12) availability of inservice training; (13) availability of computer-related curricula; (14) existence of computer-oriented student learning objectives; and (15) projected computer-related expenditures. A summary of the findings for each educational level concludes the report. A 4-item reference list and 15 tables are included. A copy of the questionnaire and additional study data are appended.
