My districts are using Info Source - I have no idea what they are using with the results.

We don't have one.

Paper and pencil 'fill-in-the-blank' test. We do not have a proficiency piece.

we have an online assessment for 8th grade literacy (NCLB). Teacher and administrator assessment is on its way, but has not yet been designed.

Mr. Faulkner said...

We really don't except in tech classes.

Looking forward to revised state standards.

Gail said...

There is no assessment for staff or administration. 8th grade students take an annual assessment test (a tech version of CSAP).

We do not have a proficiency piece.

We don't.
I can create assessments for proficiency for my own students, but nothing required by the district.

We do not have one.The assessment would be by each teacher.

We have an 8th grade test/assessment that ties to the state standards for 8th grade tech literacy.

We have started assessing students in 8th grade using the state made test.

For proficiency, I use the standards as a check list.

Our district has a formal assessment piece for 8th graders. I don't know if there is a proficiency piece to it.

As far as I know, our district does not have a formal assessment process for our students. Nor does our district have a clear proficiency plan.

We use the 8th grade tech TLAP assessment that was created by a consortium to assess student tech literacy.

We are implementing an 8th grade assessment called a "Simple Assessment" that is based on the Nets-s.

1. No formal assessment in our district.
2. No type of activity/project for proficiency

Manitou Springs School District is developing a formal assessment through our new Essential Learning and at the 8th grade level uses an on-line test.

I don't believe we have a formal technology assessment, or a proficiency piece. I assess students through observation, then differentiate according to needs.

We do not have a formal technology assessment piece in our district. We do not yet have a proficiency piece, but are working on it as we speak. We are using the information gained from TIE to develop our proficiency pre- and post- assessment. This is all forthcoming.

I do not know much about assessment or proficiency standards in my district. I know they exist, but I they have not been formally presented before teachers.

We don't have a formal one in our district.

In our school, we have an amazing computer teacher who has developed formal assessments for kids k-5

Anonymous said...

My district is in the process of creating assessments for all grade levels. Currently I think that the 8th graders are the only grade being formally assessed.

We have no formal assessment tool for technology. They do produce products, but we don't have a true proficiency piece.

We do value technology and its integration in the curriculum, but the level of use varies from classroom to classroom.

Sadly, there are no guidelines for assessing technology at our school.

We are putting together an assessment piece but not a proficiency piece.

We do not have a formal assesment. We do not have any district standards at this time. As a computer teacher, I have created essential learnings for my students. I create informal assesments for the K-5 students.

8th grade assessment for students.

Nothing for teachers yet but looking to implement within my school.

We don't have one. Our computer teacher just this year handed out an end of year checkoff assessment which only included minimal skill ie keyboarding, searching, and basic word processing skills.

Anonymous said...

We don't have a formal assessment process in our district for technology. I have one-to-one technology available in my classroom, so I informally assess my students on their proficiency with technology every day.

Anonymous said...

There are guidelines and technology is a part of every core content area which is assessed on our standards based report card. BUT there is not a common curriculum and students are only assessed in 8th grade in Technology literacy.

Anonymous said...

We do have this piece in the district. I have often used this in coordination with an on line portfolio

Elementary school, I have a checklist which is used at the end of the year for proficiency items. Students are accessed throughout the year with projects.

I would like the address of everyone who does have a classroom blog, let's share.

We have no assessment for tech or proficiency piece. We are looking into doing this this year, though.

We don't have a formal assessment to test technology in our district.

In my classroom I have informal assessments that I use daily. We have one-to-one computers that the kids are on every day. I assess through observations while they are using the technology.

We have an Exit Interview process for 8th grade, they must present a 20 minute core subject presentation in front of judges.

Our school district has just implemented an 8th grade tech assessment (Jeffco in CO).
We have also implemented Acuity/I2A for computer based progress assessments.

We have no formal assessment of technology skills at the HS level in my district. Students get a smattering of tech skills in a sophomore class called Critical Skills, but it is a mix of health, career, tech, etc. Accessibility to labs, etc., is our big issue.

Currently we have an online survey/assessment that all 8th graders take in the spring. In my classroom I give authentic assessments

We do not have a district tech assessment that I know of.

As far as my classroom is concerned, I dont have a tech literacy/proficiency assessment.

We have a performance assessment for students in the district and working on a and proficiency piece using the ISTE standards and rubric for both students and staff. Start of implementation will be this fall.

We use the TLAP project for assessment and we have a performance assessment in our ICT classes

Anonymous said...

In our district the eighth graders only have a performance assessment for technology. There is no assessment in elementary, it is not even reflected on the report card. Technology is largely at the discretion of the classroom teacher in my building.

Anonymous said...

For 8th graders, we are required to turn in a tech proficiency assessment. In only includes Word skills. Mostly our 8th grade teachers get together and guess. Net year, we will have an assessment project, but that hasn't happened so far.

No formal assessment nor standards...but we need them.

Nada. Zilch. We know about ITSE but there is nothing formal.

We did some sort of Tech test (paper and pencil) with some of the 8th graders.

Unfortunately, this is non applicable in our district for both questions.

We have an end of the year Cyber-fair where students present their projects to an audiene.

In my district, there are many things missing. Our eighth graders do a 8th grade career presentation and I, as the computer teacher, teach them how to research the careers and PowerPoint but then the 8th grade team must assess the presentations and no one does. Things must change at my school.

We used the 8th grade tech assessment created by a consortium on the Front Range. We put the paper assessment into a Moodle quiz.

8th graders produce an "exit interview" that is a fairly comprehensive presentation of their tech skills.

lgaffney said...

Although the use of technology is very much encouraged in our district, neither the students nor the staff are assessed on their technological proficiency.

Anonymous said...

We have a tech teacher in each building who assess students on basic skills of word processing, Excel, searcing the Internet, etc.

we use paper and pencil with 3 standards covered. we are hoping to use tdap if the grant is extended

Staff complete annual survey (1-5) regarding their level of knowledge on numerous checkpoints. Children complete projects of varying difficulty to show proficiency.

Iowa is starting to develop a statewide core curriculum that will include 21st century skills. Up to now we have been the only state without state standards.

Mrs. Lessig said...

We don't have a formal assessment for technology in our district, but are planning to work to either find one or create our own.

I use several projects in computer class to assess the tech standards.

Only for 8th grade, not for high school.

Interested to see how the "educator" proficiency requirement is implemented in CO districts.

Our district has not been formally assessing students or teachers. Students were assessed informally through core classes. We are currently looking into an 8th grade Literacy assessment for our district but are not focusing on assessing teahers/staff yet.

We used multiple forms of assessment. In terms of the standardized tests, our schools use ITBS.

th graders are assessed with an online assessment. Limited to productivity tools, nothing assessed with regard to social networking, personal use, etc. No assessment for teachers, administrators.

I have surveyed them for my own pre- and post-assessment.

We use project based assessments. We are investigating the use of an online tool called simple assessment as well.

Lori (WV) said...

For student assessment, WV recently adopted TechSteps. This is a branch of SchoolKit that has every student on each grade level 6 projects to be completed. After each project the teacher does an on line assessment. For teachers it is up to the building principal to do the evaluation but what we are running into is they do not know what to look for. Some feel if a teacher is showing a video on a SMART board, they are using 21st century skills!

Yes, but would like to have assess to others.

Teachers are assessed with the CA Dept of Ed EdTech Profile Survey, due each year from all teachers at all schools. There is no assessment for students, except by teachers for assessment by rubric on projects for the report cards.
Technology piece of what each grade level should learn K-5

We are implementing a program Learnin3.com to help with teaching of skills, accountability and assessment. We do not have technology teachers so some teachers would assess and some would not. Without technology grades, many teachers do not see need to assess. We need to change this mindset. Projects integrated into academics using technology as tools for creation assess the actual skill level.

I am not aware of one in our Division.

We access our students by administering NWEA testing at the beginning and ending of each school year to ensure our students are demonstrating growth. The test is administered by using technology but we don't access their technology knowledge. We also participate in CSAP testing which is also another tool in which we access our students, annually.
