TCEA and Learning.com Technology Literacy Assessment
Providing districts with the data they need to make a difference
Registration period: November 1, 2016 – March 10, 2017
Statewide Assessment Window: January 2, 2017 – June 16, 2017
Through a partnership with Learning.com, TCEA will offer all Texas districts a technology literacy assessment for 8th grade students at no cost to the district.
The online assessment includes a blend of interactive, performance-based questions and multiple-choice, knowledge-based questions to measure and report technology literacy and skills for middle school students.
The assessment will provide districts with the data they need to understand how well students grasp critical 21st century skills. It will be based on the Technology Application TEKS (TA-TEKS).
Why is TCEA & Learning.com offering this assessment?
Why is TCEA partnering with Learning.com?
Learning.com already has an assessment aligned to the TEKS standards and it works with nearly all districts in the state with two TA-TEKS curriculums: Inquiry and EasyTech. Learning.com is able to efficiently provide this assessment through its digital learning environment.
Several presentations will be offered to provide guidance on setting up, delivering, and reading the results of the assessment. Please register for the session that is best for you. All webinar sessions will be recorded, and representative recordings will be posted to http://support.learning.com/texas/tcea. You must register in advance.
