Curriculum Instruction Technology Integration Assessment

How do you know that your district is getting the right returns on your education technology investments?  The CITIA (Curriculum Instruction Technology Integration Assessment) is a tool that measures technology integration effectiveness and efficiency within a district. Results from the assessment help answer these questions and more:

 

 

  • Is our technology integration aligned appropriately with our instructional goals?
  • Is technology being used to its fullest potential?
  • Is staff adequately trained to use technology to its fullest potential?
  • Are we using the right digital tools  to meet the learning needs of our students?
  • Are there technology needs that can be met to help close the gap and stretch learning growth?
