Assessments

The instruments linked below have been developed to help researchers and teacher educators to assess evidence of teachers' knowledge for technology integration, or TPACK (technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge).

All of the instruments available here have been tested for multiple types of reliability and validity, and have proven to be robust tools. All are available for your use via a noncommercial, attribution, no derivatives Creative Commons License.

Papers describing the development and testing for each instrument are also linked below for your perusal.
