PILOT is an online, self-assessment tool for educators to determine their levels of technology proficiency and classroom application. Charts can be displayed showing the overall level for teachers at a school site as well as within a district, region, or for the entire state. And it is a tool for districts to use with their staff to plan their professional development efforts.
How PILOT Can be Used:
- Individual self-assessment
- Building or district
- Professional development program
- A tool to articulate need
- Workshop instructors
- Pre- and post-assessments
The steps for using PILOT are simple:
Create a new account by choosing the region where you live, and following the prompts
• These accounts are anonymous and a user’s email will not shared with anyone. It is used only to send the user registration information.
Fill out the survey.
• The Survey is broken into several sections, which need not be completed all at once. They allow you to self-assess on a variety of skill categories.
• Note: Individual responses will be available only to the user. They may be used in aggregate by authorized users, and state educational leaders will only use them as a general indicator of the growth in technology literacy of the state's teachers.
View survey results
• Here a user can see survey results, detailed information, and growth over time.
• This allows for viewing aggregate results for a building or for the entire state. Administrators may request permissions from Dennis Small at OSPI for district aggregate reports.
