2018 NAEP Technology and Engineering Literacy Release

 

Join the National Assessment Governing Board and the National Center for Education Statistics for the second release of the NAEP Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) results. This assessment measures students’ capacity to understand technology and how to design objects, processes, and systems to meet human needs. We’ll present how the 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. North Carolina leaders, teachers, and students will be featured.
