Abstract

"ARTS to the Delta" is an advanced-technology infrastructure for northeast Louisiana that provides a gateway for education, skills training, and enrichment for Delta-area students. The school dropout rates for students in these rural parishes are twice that of the state, and this same comparison can be made to student achievement. To evaluate the effectiveness of this program, this paper integrates and synthesizes the findings of both the internal and external evaluation process using the Teachers' Attitudes Toward Information Technology Questionnaire (TAT), which is composed of indices that are semantic differential items. This instrument has been used in several PLANIT studies in the past. The evaluation involved the faculty of the five participating elementary schools within the Delta Parishes.
