Evaluating Your College's Readiness for Technology Adoption

Implementing and supporting a new technology is difficult and expensive, both in terms of financial cost and staff time. Therefore, better understanding the likelihood of successful adoption before embarking on a reform can help your college invest wisely in new technologies. Performing a self-assessment of your college’s technological and cultural characteristics can help you evaluate whether a given technological reform is likely to be adopted, and it can help you identify issues that may need to be addressed to facilitate successful reform.

This self-assessment tool is based on the Community College Research Center’s Readiness for Technology Adoption (RTA) framework. CCRC researchers developed this forward-looking framework through an extensive review of the literature and preliminary validation research conducted at six colleges engaged in technology-based reforms (see Karp & Fletcher, 2014).
