The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and PBS TeacherLine are collaborating to develop a certificate program that recognizes educators who have met the ISTE National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS*T). Teachers will be able to earn the Certificate of Proficiency by completing a series of performance tasks. The online program allows teachers to demonstrate their use of technology for assessment and evaluation, curriculum and instruction, planning learning environments, and professional development.

The paper highlights school districts using data analysis systems to improve student outcomes, identifies factors for successfully integrating data into decision-making processes, and calls for more emphasis on data-driven decision making as a way to prepare students for the 21st century. The document is available online. CoSN, 866/267-8747 or http://www.cosn.oig/.
