Estimated completion time 10 minutes.

Below are 31 statements from the ICT dimensions of the National Standards for Graduate Teachers. You can view the National Standards for Graduate Teachers by copying this link to your browser:

The Graduate Teacher standards have been elaborated with ICT dimensions which attempt to say how the standard could be implemented with an ICT focus. This is not the only way to meet the standard, but it indicates the sort of thing a Graduate Teacher could be doing with ICT that would show they had met the standard.

As USQ ICT Pedagogy Officers, we have the job of trialling these dimensions with preservice teachers and would greatly appreciate your help. You will benefit by assessing yourself against a possible set of National Graduate Teacher Standards and helping make those standards better reflect what teachers do.

Some of the dimensions are complex statements that few teachers would completely meet. The scale used in this survey allows you to say none, some, about half, most or all of the words in the dimension statement could be used to describe your ICT capabilities now. If you believe some of the words in the statement describe your skills, you would select "some". If most of the words apply to your ICT skills, select "most" etc. It would be an extraordinary graduate indeed who could select "All" for each of the 31 dimensions.

It is not possible to save your survey responses and come back later. Your "first impression" response to each dimension is a good response - work quickly through the statements.

For each of the statements that follow, select the response that best matches how well the statement describes your ICT skills now.
