Goor, Jeanette; And Others
This report presents findings from a national survey conducted through the National Center for Education Statistics' (NCES) Fast Response Survey System (FRSS) on the availability of interactive computers for instructional purposes in public elementary and secondary schools. Following an introduction which outlines the background of and rationale for the survey, findings are presented on nine major topics: (1) the number and location of computers available for student use, (2) the uses of computers in instruction, (3) the uses of computers in relation to school district characteristics, (4) computer uses per school district, (5) the number of school districts employing computers in instruction, (6) student access to computers, (7) the number of schools with computers, (8) methods for improving computer-based instruction, and (9) critical needs for the initiation of computer-based instruction programs by school districts. Five data tables, four charts, an appendix describing the Fast Response Survey System, and a copy of the survey questionnaire accompany the text. (Author/JL)
