The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) has presented a discussion draft to the National Assessment Governing Board that oversees policies for NAEP. The draft will discuss the framework for the National Assessment of Technological Literacy. It will be the first of its kind to assess students’ ability to understand and use a range of technological tools. 

 The assessment will also evaluate students’ understanding of the different types of technology tools, their design and the different ways the tools can be used to gather information and stimulate ideas.

 The computer-based assessment is scheduled to be given in 2012 for the first time, to a representative sample of 4th, 8th and 12th graders.
