Standards & Assessments
The standards for educational technology are designed as grade level expectations for the use of digital technologies. They work compatibly, and practically, within Washington’s teaching and learning environment.
The assessments for educational technology have been integrated into the core content areas — science, math, health, English language arts, social studies and the arts. They include a checklist for K-2 teachers and offer a comprehensive inventory of free and low-cost digital resources.
Each standard is accompanied by realistic classroom activities that use very little technology – an internet connection and a PC − equipment we know is available in 99%+ of state classrooms, as well as activities well-suited to learning environments in which technology is abundant.
Assessment activities are well guided, easy to use and come equipped with a comprehensive inventory of free and low-cost digital resources. Teachers will use these assessments to determine student progress toward Washington’s standards for educational technology.
