Abstract: The purpose of this study was to report the results of a survey on computer programs conducted among the certified personnel in Henderson County elementary schools. Respondents registered the intensity of their attitudes to two groups of stimuli: factors which limit the current program, and factors which might be added or changed to improve the program in the future. The survey also gathered information about the teachers' certification levels, experience, and computer training. The results of the survey indicated that respondents to the survey are comparable to the entire staff in certification and experience, that they are comparable to statewide norms in the area of experience, and that they are slightly above state averages in terms of graduate degrees. Survey responses indicated that teachers' chief concern is for planning time. Other strong concerns are for a specifically trained staff member to assist in the computer area, for an expanded computer inventory, and for a greater supply of software.
