Letters extra: ICT choice missing

30th March 2001 at 01:00

I am the ICT co-ordinator at our primary school and have received a copy of the ICT in Schools 2001 survey.

It seems the Government is trying to prove that the money invested in ICT has had either a substantial or littlenone impact on the curriculum.

I assume this because question 3 about how beneficial ICT isnbsp;has a misprint in that the middle column is missing. The two option columns are substantial or littlenone. There is obviously a middle column missing offering an in-between option. As it stands one has to make a judgment that ICT has either had a substantial impactnbsp;or littlenone.

One could surmise that the whole point of the survey is to prove that ICT has had a substantial impact, but wouldn't that be a little too cynical? What do you think?
