A new report from the National Center for Educational Statistics digs into the trends in technology and engineering literacy for eighth graders over a four-year period.  When it comes to the TEL assessment, it evaluates students in three practice areas: understanding technological principles, developing solutions and achieving goals, and communicating and collaborating. Scores increased by at least 2 points in all practice areas in 2018. Girls scored higher than boys across all three practice areas, but the TEL findings showed that girls take less technology and engineering classes in school compared to boys.
