Technology Use and Achievement in Idaho Schools: A State Wide Study of Schools, Teachers and Students. Final Evaluation Report.
Ravitz, Jason; Mergendoller, John
This report interprets data about student and teacher technology use to portray what is happening in Idaho classrooms and to provide guidance for future funding decisions. It brings together several data sets, including a statewide Idaho School Technology Inventory, standardized tests of student achievement, and a teacher survey that has been used in national studies of teacher pedagogy and technology use. Part 1 discusses school data, including basic differences by size and grade, computer use and student achievement, and 1999-2000 change in overall school achievement. Part 2 addresses teacher technology use by grade and subject, including teacher technology access, teacher software capability and professional computer use, software use with students, objectives for software use with students, and teachers' perceptions of student achievement and technology use. Part 3 covers teacher technology use and student achievement, including teachers' computer use and schoolwide test scores for math and language arts, as well as subject-specific software use and schoolwide test scores. Part 4 examines student computer use and software capability. Part 5 looks at student software capability and schoolwide test scores, and Part 6 discusses within-school student software capability and achievement. Appendices include a list of data sources and variables and several supplementary data tables. (MES)
