Measuring Impact of Technology in a Tech-Rich Environment

Greetings, I am hoping to get some advice from this community. Our team is interested in measuring the impact of technology in adult basic ESL/GED classes. We face two challenges, 1) many classes have tech integration 2) finding a measurement to reflect impact of tech integration. In other words, how can we effectively evaluate student and instructor use of the tech if they have already been exposed? Below are a few initial ideas. I am interested in hearing other approaches.
