SITE 2017 – 1:1 Laptop Experience and High-Stakes Testing: Effects on Eighth-Grade Student Achievement

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

  1. Lea Johnson, The University of Mississippi, United States
  2. Denver Fowler, The University of Mississippi, United States

Wednesday, March 8 4:15-4:35 PM in Barton View on map

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.
