OPTIONS FOR ASSESSING STUDENTS FOR
THE 8.1 COMPUTER AND INFORMATION LITERACY STANDARD
School districts can use any assessment tool and resources that most meet their needs. The NJDOE has developed criteria for evaluating the products that we believe will assist school districts in assessing students for technological literacy while assisting them to integrate technology across all curriculum areas. The NJDOE invites vendors to submit their products for review at any time.
In addition to the products evaluated, there are a multitude of products or services available to school districts. Please review the following websites for the many different available options. The products listed on the websites below are provided solely for informational purposes, and do not constitute and shall not be construed in whole or part as an endorsement of a vendor or a product by the New Jersey Department of Education, the State Board of Education, or any employee or Office of the Department. This list is not exhaustive or conclusive, and the New Jersey Department of Education makes no representation or claim as to the suitability or usability of any program or product for a particular purpose. There are other products available that may serve district needs in addressing student technology literacy, including district-created assessment strategies. It is solely the decision of each school district to determine what assessment tools or strategies are appropriate for addressing student technology literacy.
