Instructional Technology Assistance Project. Evaluation Report: Year Two, 2001-2002.
An evaluation was conducted of the Instructional Technology Assistance Project. Its goals were to promote learning in technologically enhanced classrooms; support adult education (AE) teachers in developing skills and confidence in integrating technology into instruction; and identify exemplary practices in technology enhanced AE. Data sources included onsite visits; teacher interviews, attitude and satisfaction surveys, implementation project plans and results; workshop descriptions, attendance, and evaluation; and student computer skills surveys. Participants included 66 teachers from 6 sites and 7 AE programs. Teachers made 138 workshop appearances; 16 teachers completed classroom projects using technology. On a pre/post survey of 15 technology skills, teachers showed an average 24 percent gain. Thirteen workshops at various sites were evaluated for clarity of objectives, pace, relevance of activities, and meeting of participant needs. One site did a student pre/post computer skills assessment; 100 percent of students made significant gains. Of 36 goals set by sites, 32 were met, 2 partially met, and 2 were unmet. Teachers at several sites undertook projects to further integrate technology into their classrooms. Of 28 project goals proposed, 23 were met, 4 partially met, and 1 was unmet. A pre/post questionnaire showed teacher attitudes toward technology improved by an average 6.5 percent in 8 areas. (Sample instruments are appended.) (YLB)
