As part of the evaluation of PT3 sponsored technology integration workshops conducted at Arizona State University West, a Likert-type questionnaire was developed to collect information about teachers' beliefs and skill levels related to technology integration. This presentation will include a description of the questionnaire that is being used to collect pre-test and post-test data from preservice and inservice teachers. The instrument contains several subscales targeting teachers' perceptions of their confidence and skill level for using technology, knowledge of technology standards and the Unit of Practice (UOP), and beliefs about the best use and effects of technology integration. The focus of the presentation will then shift to the results obtained from its first administration. Quantitative results and conclusions about the effects of the technology training are presented.
