The Integrated Studies of Educational Technology (ISET) covers the perspectives of state, districts, schools, and teachers on educational technology in the nation's schools. ISET includes surveys of all state technology coordinators; a stratified, national probability sample of public school districts; a probability sample of schools nested within the selected district sample; and a probability sample of teachers nested within the school sample. This sampling design allows for the analysis of interrelationships of policies and programs at all levels of the educational system.
