To measure states’ progress in establishing technology-rich environments for students, we relied on Digital Learning Now!’s 2013 state rankings of state technology policy. They graded states on the following 10 indicators and computed an overall score, which is reproduced in this report:

  1. Student eligibility
  2. Student access
  3. Personalized learning
  4. Advancement
  5. Quality content
  6. Quality instruction
  7. Quality choices
  8. Assessment and accountability
  9. Funding
  10. Delivery

Because Digital Learning Now! did not grade Washington, D.C., it did not receive a grade for this metric.
