Technology skills standards at the local, state, and national levels may serve as an adequate yardstick for satisfying set requirements; yet, they have another useful purpose. A careful selection and testing of those skills through a progressive demonstration by third grade subjects reveals how an individual school might adjust its own approach to technology at every grade level, thus, tailoring its own guidelines and satisfying standards. This paper describes the development of two instruments which measure and assess young children's computing skills and related learning needs.
