Watch Livestream of the 2018 NAEP Technology and Engineering Literacy Release
AACTE invites you to view a livestreamed panel discussion about the second release of the NAEP Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) results by the National Assessment Governing Board and the National Center for Education Statistics. The livestream is on Tuesday, April 30 from 2:00-4:00pm EDT. Register now!
In response to the increasing role of technology in students’ lives, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) administers the Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) assessment—the first one of its kind in the United States. TEL adds valuable information to what NAEP reports for science and mathematics. This assessment measures students’ capacity to understand technology and how to design objects, processes, and systems to meet human needs. During the livestreamed event, presenters will discuss how the 2018 results compare to the 2014 debut of TEL and show how this assessment breaks the testing mold.
The results will be livestreamed from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh—a hub for technology and engineering. Participants include
- Beverly Perdue, chair, National Assessment Governing Board, former North Carolina governor
- James Lynn Woodworth, commissioner, National Center for Education Statistics
- Peggy Carr, associate commissioner, assessment division, National Center for Education Statistics
