The twenty-sixth session that I am blogging here at SITE 2017 related to K-12 Online and Blended Learning is:
1:1 Laptop Experience and High-Stakes Testing: Effects on Eighth-Grade Student Achievement
Presider: Joshua Ellis, Michigan Technological University, United States
The purpose of this study was to explore if ubiquitous access to laptop technology affects student achievement on high-stakes online assessments. Existing research on school district 1:1 laptop implementations may be missing key information about student achievement on high-stakes assessment. This post hoc, quasi-experimental, quantitative study explores how 1:1 laptop access affects student achievement. As it pertains to the results, useful information is provided for school districts and/or school leaders who are considering implementing a 1:1 initiative in their respective school district/building.
Note that I am presenting at the same time as this session, so I am unable to take notes. If you happen to be in this session, I’d encourage you to post your notes below.
