2011 Census of Technology: Missouri Schools K-12
Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
The Census of Technology (COT) is designed to assess Missouri's continuing investment in K-12 education technologies. The COT provides important data for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to share with state and national decision-makers to help advance public policy and increase public awareness and support for education technology. The COT provides local school districts with data to help identify local needs, develop strategies to facilitate school improvement processes and compare district progress with statewide data. The census is a primary data source for measuring progress toward meeting state goals and objectives. Despite the challenging economy, the 2010-11 COT data show school districts in Missouri continue to make gains in ensuring their students are exposed to technological tools useful in developing the skills necessary for successful entry into the 21st century work force. With the implementation of a new streamlined data collection tool, this year's census was shortened to three questions for the district and seven questions for each building. With the rollout of its new Missouri Comprehensive Data System portal in 2011, the Department has developed a tool that allows school personnel and the public to access education-related data. This COT report is among the first reports to utilize the portal system. Missouri Census of Technology 2011 is appended. (Contains 4 figures and 6 tables.)
