Popular image confronts high stakes reality where student assessment is concerned. All the media stories about today's plugged-in kids simultaneously surfing the Web, IM-ing their friends, blogging, and gaming can make us forget that many PK-12 students don t have that kind of access. Even when they do, they're not necessarily picking up the technology skills they need for educational, career, and civic success in the 21st century. Resources for Student Assessment helps resolve this conundrum with NETS based strategies and tools that accurately measure students ability to use technology effectively for learning. You'll find detailed guidelines for creating and choosing reliable tests of technology literacy for various grades as well as case studies and best practices at the site, district, and state levels.

Detailed NETS -S assessment rubrics designating technology competency targets for Grades 2, 5, 8, and 12
Models for creating classroom assessments of student technology use as well as case studies of large-scale assessment initiatives
