Abstract

Findings based on school-as-a-unit-of-analysis and classroom-as-a-unit-of-analysis data from the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) for 8th Grade Science indicate that training in Gizmo use and in other hands-on technology based applications is associated with increases in TAKS scores. However, classroom-level analysis of 2007 to 2008 gains in 8th grade Science TAKS scores indicate that Level of Technology Implementation (LoTI) scores may be even more closely aligned with TAKS gains than are measures of Gizmo use. Further research is needed in these areas.
