Handheld Research Article

The Journal of Technology, Learning, and Assessment recently included an article entitled "Designing Handheld Software to Support Classroom Assessment: Analysis of Conditions for Teacher Adoption."

The key research questions included:
What kinds of software designs can be feasibly implemented in classrooms that support effective assessment practice?
What are the conditions under which teachers can adopt handheld tools to support classroom assessment?

However, the 3-year study provides additional information that can be used for a number of purposes, such as learning more about handhelds and assessment, addressing assessment in general, for justification for writing your own grants, and much more.
