Nation's first tech-literacy exam - 2012

Tech literacy to be added to Nation’s Report Card beginning in 2012.

In four years, American students are scheduled to be tested on technological literacy.

For the first time ever, technological literacy will become part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as the Nation's Report Card, the test's governing board has announced.

Beginning in 2012, the test will measure students' proficiency with technology in addition to reading, math, science, history, writing, and other subjects. The new test will mark the first time students' technology literacy has been assessed on a national level.
