After reviewing survey data from teacher preparation students it became clear that students self-identify as being least prepared to use technology for assessment and evaluation. In order to provide a platform to link technology, assessment and evaluation, an initial taxonomy was developed that is based upon Standard Four (Assessment and Evaluation) of NETS. In addition, five categories of technology tools for assessment and evaluation are identified and discussed in the paper: creation/production tool, tools that report information, tools for specific measurements –program specific and external measurements, tools that monitor ongoing progress, and tools used for the support of performance assessments.
