District Information Technology Plans and Planning: Monitoring Implementation and Assessing Impact.
Mojkowski, Charles
A method is described for the evaluation of information technology (IT) use in school districts. The approach is based on studies of IT evaluation and experience in evaluating IT in several school districts. The proposed approach relies on five components: (1) multiple indicators and measures of performance; (2) balanced attention to implementation and impact; (3) multiple data collection and reporting strategies; (4) the use of IT for the evaluation; and (5) ways to help a district enhance its IT capacity. Many problems with IT can be traced to faulty IT planning and design, while others relate to specific problems with the design itself. Implications for practice, policy, and research are discussed, with attention to planning, IT design, and the conduct of the evaluation of IT implementation. (Contains 42 references.) (SLD)
