Atomic Learning recently announced there Tech Assessment program for students, just in time for Thanksgiving Break, which means most Texas schools won’t be able to use the assessment to assess 9th graders who were 8th graders during 2007-2008 school year.
However, it’s perfect in advance of the 8th grade technology literacy assessments scheduled for end of school year, 2008-2009! Whether this assessment will be any better than Learning.com, InfoSource Learning’s Simple Assessment, or other assessment options…that’s another question.
Here’s a little information from their email announcement:
|Assess student technology comprehension based on ISTE NETS-S 2007.|
|Atomic Learning’s Tech Skills Assessment helps you gauge technology skill levels, demonstrating skills can actually be applied.
|How is the Tech Skills Assessment unique?|
From what I can see, this assessment may not be free but dependent on a district’s purchase of other offers, effectively pricing it out of the budget of several districts.
