Abstract: This research study was conducted to enhance and validate an instrument that can be used to measure factors related to teachers’ laptop integration in K-12 classrooms. The instrument consists of 30 items and has five scales: Teacher Beliefs, Teacher Readiness, Support for Development, Professional Development, and School Support. Three hundred and eighty three teachers completed the online questionnaire. Results of a factor analysis and reliability analysis confirmed that the instrument is a valid and reliable measure of teachers’ laptop integration.
