Statewide Evaluation Report on Productivity Project Studies Related to Improved Use of Technology To Extend Educational Programs. Sub-Report Three: Survey of Technology Projects throughout the United States.
Quinn, D. William; Williams, David D.
Telephone interviews were conducted with key individuals in each of the 50 states to gather information on both the most successful and the least successful technology-based educational projects at the elementary and secondary levels in each state. The survey was designed to elicit information on the following: (1) the instructional needs addressed by technology-based distance learning projects; (2) the subject matter areas involved in these projects; (3) the levels and types of students for whom these projects are intended; (4) the technologies used by these projects; (5) results of evaluations of the effectiveness of these projects; (6) the participants' perceptions of the instructional value of the projects; (7) the cost-effectiveness of the projects; (8) and other instructional needs not addressed by the projects. This report provides a description of the survey methodology and procedures; a summary of the results of the analysis of data for each of the questions that were obtained through the interviews and any associated materials collected from the states; and six suggestions for further inquiry. Two appendixes contain state-by-state summaries of the findings for each state and copies of the survey materials used, including the interview questionnaire. (EW)
