This report surveyed 997 schools in school year 2009‐2010 on issues related to school leadership, environment, technology implementations, and instructional and financial impact. Questions regarding 22 independent variables provided insight into 11 education success measures, ranging from graduation and dropout rates to high‐stakes test scores and paperwork reduction.

The report details how nine key implementation factors are linked to improved test scores and graduation rates and reductions in disciplinary actions and dropout rates. The key implementation factors identified by the researchers include use of technology in every intervention class, skillful change management leadership by the school principal, a strong student/computer ratio, and the integration of technology into core subjects at least once a week.
