Title II-D Personnel Technological Proficiency

Personnel Technological Proficiency Self Assessment Survey

CDE is pleased to announce the release of PTP Self Assessment System. This resource includes two self-assessment surveys to help districts in determining staff proficiency in instructional technology. Built in partnership with an outside assessment expert the surveys are based on the 2008 NETS·T and NETS·A -- one for teachers and media specialists/librarians and the other for administrators. The surveys are reliable and valid and underwent numerous field reviews. The self-assessment surveys allow staff to rate themselves based on how they feel they are able to perform in a specific area.

The surveys are intended to support LEAs that accept Title II Part D funds in meeting the U.S. Department of Education’s requirement to report the percentages of personnel that are proficient in technology. LEAs are required to assess personnel to determine these percentages however; the use of CDE’s new survey tools is optional and not required by CDE.

How to use the PTP Self Assessment System to meet reporting requirements

All districts are required to participate in the Annual HR/Sped collections. This is also how CDE captures the PTP reporting requirements for Title II, Part D. To streamline the use of the PTP Self Assessment System and the Annual HR/Sped collections, CDE designed the online system to capture the proficiency ratings for each staff member and then automatically upload that data in the HR/SPED collections. If the LEA elects to use the self assessment surveys, the LEA will only need to report the assessment type in the HR/SPED collection for their participating staff. All remaining fields associated with this collection can be zero filled. For any staff that do not participate or if the LEA uses a different assessment tool, the LEA will need to populate all required fields in the HR/Sped collections.

How to access the PTP Self Assessment System

Access to the PTP Self Assessment Survey System is currently not available.

Educator ID: The PTP Self Assessment System will use the unique Educator Identifier Number as the user ID. This is the 8-digit numerical code generated by CDE for every employed educator last summer. CDE did not distribute the Educator Identifier with individual educators, so the district will need to create a mechanism for distributing the numbers.

District Code: This is the four digit district code.

LEAs that elect to use this system will be responsible for disseminating username and password information to each individual staff member that is required to be assessed.

The survey system will be available until the HR/Sped collection closes February 25, 2011. Upon request, CDE will provide a report of all the data collected in the system.
