In spring 2016, over 800 schools administered computer-based field tests to 60,000+ New York State students. Feedback following this computer-based testing (CBT) administration indicated that teachers and administrators in New York are actively participating in conversations on student technology skills. As schools prepare for the transition to CBT for 3-8 English Language Arts and Mathematics over the next few years, we anticipate that more and more districts will be engaged in these conversations.

NYSED has clearly communicated that technology should be utilized in everyday instruction to enhance teaching and learning, and should not be limited to skills necessary to take an assessment on a computer.

NYSED is interested in gathering information from the field around the issue of student and teacher technology literacy.* Please help us to understand how we can support your needs on this topic by responding to this brief survey.
We also welcome you to send comments by email to All feedback will be used to inform NYSED's next steps regarding technology literacy.

*Technology Literacy can be defined as "the ability to responsibly use appropriate technology to communicate, solve problems, and access, manage, integrate, evaluate, and create information to improve learning in all subject areas and to acquire lifelong knowledge and skills in the 21st century" (SEDTA 2007).
