Abstract: Since implementing its one-to-one laptop program in 1997, Winona State University (WSU) has been a living, mobile computing laboratory. However, gaps in our assessment strategy emerged requiring a more comprehensive approach. Working with students and faculty, a plan was developed and implemented. The plan has already resulted in improvements to student and faculty support as well as a better understanding of how technology facilitates teaching and learning. Lessons learned will be discussed, all of which can be transferred to similar assessment efforts related to educational technology.
