The 'Digital Divide' is now a part of the American lexicon. Legislators and public policy makers argue that computer access makes a significant difference in learning outcomes and test scores. But is this truly the case? This is the key question addressed in this meticulous investigation. This book determines whether students with Internet access at have higher standardized test scores than those without Internet access. It also measures a variety of other variables - including household income levels and parents' educational levels - as other predictors of performance on standardized tests. The objective and rigorous method reveals the truth of how Internet access impacts test score performance. The results are of obvious importance to legislators, policy makers, and parents concerned with enhancing student performance. The Impact of Home Internet Access on Test Scores should be part of any collection in education, public policy, and sociology.
