Assessing Progress of Your Technology Initiatives: Guide for State and Local Education Leaders

This guide was developed as a companion to the Center on Technology and Disability’s video series Research, Technology, & Students With Disabilities: Supporting LEA & SEA Decision Making. The video series is designed for leaders of state education agencies (SEAs) and local education agencies (LEAs) who want an overview of conducting and participating in research and evaluation studies. This guide extends the learning in the series and is designed to support education leaders as you evaluate progress toward meeting the goals and intended outcomes for your educational technology initiatives and programs. This guide is not intended to teach you everything you need to know to conduct an evaluation; rather, it serves as a starting point with some targeted resources to support your work in the evaluation process.
