Report: Education technology benchmarks lagging

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) today released the results of the 2011 Vision K-20 Survey, its fourth annual national survey to measure U.S. educational institutions’ self-reported progress toward building a framework that embraces technology and eLearning.

The report surveyed nearly 500 educators and education administrators, and suggests that K-20 institutions are not making progress toward the education goals and technology benchmarks set forth by the Vision K-20 Initiative.

Key findings from the 2011Vision K-20 Report:
--The average score on the 20 benchmarking statements in the 2011 survey was slightly lower (60, on a scale of 25 to 100) than the average scores from the 2010 and 2009 surveys (62).
--A slight decline is seen in scores on almost all benchmarking statements.
--For the third consecutive year, the lowest ranked benchmark was their use of technology-based assessment tools.
