TPACK Survey(s), now available

by | Wednesday, March 04, 2009

As the TPACK framework has developed and received greater research and scholarly attention there has been an increasing demand for a survey instrument that can help us measure TPACK. There are now two such measures available.

We, here at Michigan State, in close collaboration with people at Iowa State, have been working on developing such a survey. This current version of the survey is now available on the wiki (here’s a direct link).

The key people who have worked on developing the survey are Denise A. Schmidt, Evrim Baran, Ann D. Thompson (from The Center for Technology in Learning and Teaching at Iowa State University); Matthew J. Koehler, Punya Mishra, and Tae Shin (from Michigan State).
Michigan State University.

Details of the application of this survey can be found in the following papers:

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK): The Development and Validation of an Assessment Instrument for Preservice Teachers. Paper presented at the 2009 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association. April 13-17, San Diego, California.

Another survey to measure TPACK, created independently, is by Archambault, L., & Crippen, K. (2009) and has been recently published in the CITE Journal.

    I am an EdD student at UMASS- Amherst and I have a question about your survey. As the assistive technology professional in a large urban district, I often encounter anxiety among some teachers when it comes to integrating technology into pedagogy. My question: Can your survey be used with practicing teachers. Also, are there any studies that have used it with practicing teachers?
