Abstract

This study identifies the current status of computer hardware and software presently implemented in the southwest Missouri public high school business programs. Data compiled from copies of the questionnaire mailed to public high school business instructors in a 50-mile radius of Springfield, Missouri, utilizes descriptive statistics. The computer hardware findings define brand name usage and technological trends of computer utilization in the southwest Missouri region. The software findings are based on rank, dispersement trends, classification, and curricular potential. The results for computer hardware show southwest Missouri following trends similar to several national research results. The software findings indicate that software usage in southwest Missouri is diverse in nature. The study depicts the positive and negative aspects of the software implemented into the business programs.
