Now Available! SIIA’s 2015 Vision K-20 Survey Report
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) has conducted its annual national Vision K-20 Survey, now in its eighth year, and has released the full report measuring U.S. educational institutions’ self-reported progress toward technology and e-learning adoption. The survey, an online self-assessment of 33 benchmarks representing the Vision’s seven instructional and institutional goals enabled through technology and e-learning, was completed by over 1,000 K-12 and postsecondary instructors and administrators.
This year’s survey report shows that K-20 education institutions are making slow but steady progress toward reaching their instructional and operational goals through the use of technology, including increased use of student data.
“MMS Education is pleased to be the lead partner with SIIA on their Vision K-12 Survey Report. This year we added several new questions about the use of individual student data, and found that nearly 70% of all participants responded with an increase in the use of technology to gather student data, and a significant majority report they need training and help in learning how to use the data,” says Susan Meell, CEO, MMS Education.
Among other things, key findings from the report show that the use of technology to manage student data has increased and educators are utilizing electronic data most often to track student performance and improve instruction.
