Data Collection Training and Procedures Manual. Building & Educational Technology Assessment. Revised Edition.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
A manual has been designed to assist Texas Education Agency investigators in their attempt to take a state-wide inventory of elementary and secondary school facilities and educational technology. This manual examines data collection activities, data storage and maintenance, deliverables, and reporting. Every campus is expected to be inventoried including a room by room inventory of size and condition, a condition rating of all building systems, and an inventory count of computers, printers, and other technical equipment they contain. The methodology for data collection includes the use of high school students to perform measuring, counting, and other non-subjective data collection activities in order to limit undue burden on district staff. Students are to be monitored during survey activities by professionals, and individual rooms are to be inventoried after school hours to minimize disruption of classes. Appendices, comprising half the manual, provide data collection instruments, a sample pre-visit package, a glossary of terms, intended room use codes, a sample progress reporting system, an educational adequacy questionnaire, and field test results.
