Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
This report provides a brief summary of the major findings and recommendations derived from an extensive study of educational technology programs funded by the State of California since 1984 under two legislative acts, AB 803 and AB 1470. An independent evaluation of educational technology programs required by AB 1470 was conducted by The Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development and American Institutes for Research in 1991. The evaluation design emphasized both formative assessment of program implementation and summative assessment of educational and program outcomes. This evaluation report is expected to serve as a primary source of information for the California Planning Commission for Educational Technology in developing the California Master Plan for educational technology and to help to inform and shape future policy, planning, implementation, and evaluation of educational technology in California. Major sections of this report are: (1) Background and Overview; (2) Educational Technology Programs Funded from 1989-1991, including School-Based Educational Technology Grants, Software Development Partnerships, Level I and Level II Model Technology Schools, Instructional Television Agencies, and the California Technology Project; (3) Educational Technology Programs Funded from 1984-1989; and (4) Overall Analysis, Conclusions, and Recommendations.
