- The Technology Readiness Tool
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is preparing for a transition to computer-based testing, using the Technology Readiness Tool (www.techreadiness.net). Nonpublic and charter schools are encouraged to participate in the Technology Readiness Tool by providing a point of contact to NYSED at email@example.com. When you provide a point of contact for your school's use of the Technology Readiness Tool, s/he will receive an auto-generated welcome message to get started with the Technology Readiness Tool. A recommended point person could be your school's technology or data director/coordinator. Questions about the Technology Readiness Tool may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For information about the transition to computer-based testing, please refer to NYSED's computer-based testing webpage.
