The Snapshot Survey Service: A Web Site for Assessing Teachers' and Administrators' Technology Activities, Beliefs, and Needs.
Norris, Cathleen; Soloway, Elliot
This paper documents the authors' efforts at constructing, deploying, and analyzing Snapshot Surveys in a range of educational settings. The Snapshot Survey Service is an Internet-based technology that enables educators at the local, state, and even national level to survey, quickly and at low-cost, other educators on issues that are particularly important to their local area. The first section summarizes the Snapshot Surveys hosted and experiences with follow-through. The second section presents data from the surveys and discusses findings. The third section addresses the impact of the Snapshot Survey process. The fourth section describes the Snapshot Survey and World Wide Web site design rationale, including choice of questions, interface design, the human side of collecting data, the technology side of collecting data, analysis and display of findings, automation issues, and presentations. The report, "A Snapshot of the Implementation of Education-Related Technology in Nebraska's K-12 Schools: Executive Summary of Preliminary Findings" (Neal W. Topp, Neal Grandgenett, Robert Mortenson, Cathleen Norris, and Elliot Soloway), is appended. (MES)
