The Impact of Home Internet Access on Test Scores

by Steve Macho

Reviews

"...in this carefully designed quasi-experimental research, Dr. Macho uses an alternative approach to investigating digital divide issues relative to a select few classic factors of academic achievement. His thorough analysis of confounding variables contained within a large extant database provides a signifi cant contribution to our further understanding of the interplay between Internet access at home and a host of variables known to contribute to academic achievement...This research is a significant addition to the body of knowledge regarding the effects of Internet access on the learning process, and provides policy makers, school administrators and classroom teachers with evidence of the importance of such access. For those concerned with the inequities of resources attributed to a digital divide that threatens the preparation of a literate citizenry, the basis of our democratic society, this research is a must read." - Professor John G. Wells, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
