In the Fall of 2002, the Metiri Group was commissioned by SETDA to develop an assessment framework for effective technology use in schools. That framework, available on the SETDA site 2002 Toolkit, is based on a set of key questions aligned to indicators and data elements. (Note: A subset of the identified data elements could be used to assess states' progress with NCLB, EETT.)
The Common Data Elements Committee recommends a state-by-state data collection methodology that includes a combination of surveys: a single point of contact at schools, districts, and the state, combined with a stratified random sampling of schools/classrooms. The workgroup at the NLI 2003 strongly concurred with the Committee’s recommendation for site visitations at the classroom/school level in order to fully assess the goals of NCLB, Title II, Part D.
The SETDA/Metiri Assessment Framework is based on a set of questions that provide important data for tracking states' progress with technology components of NCLB (Title II, Part D). The full framework, which includes indicators of success and common data elements, can be accessed at: SETDA/Metiri.
| Impact on Learners: |
- Improvement of academic achievement through effective technology use
- Assurance that students acquire 21st century skills through effective technology use in the context of high standards and high quality learning
- Engagement of students in learning through effective technology use
|Educator Proficiency ||Robust Access, Anywhere, Anytime ||Digital |
|Vision, Systems and Leadership |
Is the vision being translated into practice through learning environments characterized by powerful, research-based strategies that effectively use technologies?
|Are educators proficient in implementing, assessing and supporting a variety of effective practices for teaching and learning? ||Do students and school staff have robust access to technology-anytime, anywhere-to support effective designs for teaching and learning? ||s the digital divide being addressed through resources and strategies that ensure that all students are engaging in an educational program aligned to the vision? ||Has the education system reengineered itself into a high-performance learning organization? |
|This framework is grounded in the work of NCREL and Metiri Group on enGauge: A Framework for Effective Technology Use. http://www.ncrel.org/engauge/ |
