The TTSD 21st Century Skills Survey is given to students at the beginning of the school year and again in the spring. These technology skills surveys are developed in grade bands PK-2, grades 3-5, grades 6-8, and grades 9-12. The survey has several self assessment questions under each of the five categories below. This article will show you how to access your students' survey results through TeacherVUE.

Survey Structure

Within each category, students were asked to respond an "I can..." statement using a 1-4 scale:

  1. I do not agree
  2. I agree somewhat
  3. I generally agree
  4. I strongly agree

Sample question in the "Device Troubleshooting category, "I can solve problems with my iPad when it is not working properly."  Student responses within each category were averaged and rounded to the nearest whole number prior to import into Synergy.

The second student appears to be confident in this area so it may be good to pair these two students up. Note: you may or may not see the raw score column, but the numbers will be the same.
