Home Computers

I plan to do a small scale pilot study looking at L2 students and the effects of having a home computer on various math and reading scores. Also, I will examine the correlation of the frequency of home computer use and the effects on achievement tests. The dataset I will be using for research is the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten class of 1998-1999(ECLS-K). This data set samples children from kindergarten in 1998-1999 and follows them until they’re in the eighth grade in 2007. The children are from a diverse population of public school, private school, full day, and half-day kindergartens. This is the first national study to follow children from kindergarten to middle school. Data for this study was collected from children, parents, teachers, and schools.
