Abstract: This paper reports on the findings from an online survey administered to 593 science teachers including heads of science departments in 2004. This survey is part of a study initiated in December 2003 to examine the implementation, efficacy and use of dataloggers in Singapore science curricula. Dataloggers were introduced to all Singapore schools during the First Masterplan for IT in Education (1997-2002) to support science learning and experimentation. The aim of the survey is to find out how secondary schools and junior colleges have been supporting and integrating the use of these dataloggers in the teaching and learning of science. The findings from this survey address : profile of schools and teachers using dataloggers; ways in which dataloggers are used in the science curriculum; teachers’ perceptions on whether pupils were able to interpret and analyse graphs; roles of teachers in preparing pupils and guiding them when using dataloggers in set experiments and inquiry based science experiments
