The Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) assessment measured whether students are able to apply technology and engineering skills to real-life situations. TEL is computer-based and uses interactive scenario-based tasks to gauge what students know and can do. NAEP field staff will be administering the 2018 TEL assessment from January to March of 2018. The innovative tasks and results of the 2014 assessment are available now.
