This starter guide gives a broad overview of issues surrounding the evaluation of the effectiveness of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) environments. Unfortunately, there is no 18magic bullet 19 which will tell you simply and easily that a certain application of ICT has had an effect on student learning. Indeed, we can 19t evaluate ICT in isolation 13 we have to look at student learning in the teaching and learning environment as a whole.

This guide is aimed at teaching staff and project managers involved in developing ICT applications. We will focus on the hardest part 13 planning an evaluation study. Once a plan is in place, people with social science research skills can be employed to do much of the leg-work of the study.
