The use of technology is an essential element in the world in which we live. This study is important because schools around the world spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on one-to-one technology integration in the classroom. The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to determine if a predictive relationship exists between the attitudinal level towards one-to-one technology and student academic achievement of ninth-grade students. A bivariate regression analysis was used to determine if there was a predictive relationship between student academic achievement as measure by EOC scores Algebra 1 and Biology 1 and the attitudinal test scores measured by the PATT-SQ. The attitudinal survey was distributed to 195 participants via Google Docs. The participants for this study were drawn from a convenience sample of one high school located in rural northwest South Carolina who were enrolled in either Algebra 1 or Biology 1, during the spring of the 2018-2019 school year. The regression analysis revealed that attitudinal scores did not predict student academic achievement in Algebra 1 nor Biology 1.
