What This Rating Means

Results Not Demonstrated

A rating of Results Not Demonstrated (RND) indicates that a program has not been able to develop acceptable performance goals or collect data to determine whether it is performing.
  • This program addresses a continuing need, enabling the effective use of technology in classrooms to improve student academic achievement, through increased hardware accessibility and technology training. While there is access to computers and the Internet in nearly all schools, enough data are not yet available to determine the program's impact on improving student academic achievement.
  • The Department has developed annual, long-term, and efficiency measures to assess the program's impact on student achievement and classroom practices. The Department has reported initial data and developed targets related to disparities in access to technology and the Internet. Data for the remaining indicators is expected in the summer of 2007.
  • The Department is currently conducting two program evaluations. The first evaluation focuses on program implementation by States, local educational agencies, and schools, while the second evaluation examines the impact of classroom technology on student achievement. Final reports for both evaluations will be available in the fall of 2007.
