At the Hungarian Institute for Educational research and Development an R+D team developed an online self-evaluation asset for schools which also serves as a country-wide monitoring tool for assessing the educational use of ICT in compulsory education. It collects soft data in four fields, learning, teaching, operation and infrastructure; and concentrates on pedagogical issues with a whole school approach. 2427 schools have already registered in the system. In 2011 362, in 2012 and this year also 723 full self-evaluations have been done. There are 83 schools doing so in 2011 and 2012, no data yet on their number in 2013. We have already had three evaluation periods and are working on the data set of the third one. The yearly report puts the schools in four categories according to their level of ICT usage, the category names are based on the UNESCO/IFIP categories described in Approaches to ICT Development in Schools. The paper is to introduce the system itself and the data we have already collected, - in comparison with an European survey carried out in the autumn in 2011, called Survey of Schools: ICT in Education.
