What data was used to determine that 65% of students already have devices?

In January, 2014, we surveyed the entire student body concerning the types of devices they had access to. For each type of device that we thought students were likely to have, we asked two questions:

NOTE: before we asked any questions we told the students that they could only answer yes to one of the following questions:

  1. Do you own a Chromebook (just for example)? Own means that you purchased it with your own money or that it was given to you as a gift for your birthday or Christmas or some other occasion. 
  2. Do you have access to a Chromebook? Have access means that there is one at your house that someone else does not use every day that would generally be available for you to use if you asked. We don't mean your mother's laptop that she uses for work.

We realize that this allows for some confusion of the data when students might have both a Chromebook and a Kindle Fire HD, or when siblings might both report that they "have access to" the same device. To help clean up our final numbers we also asked as our final questions how many students owned any of the tablets or laptops that we mentioned.
