About two in every five South Dakota eighth-graders failed to meet expectations last year on the state Technology Literacy Assessment. Required by the federal government, the computer-based test first was administered statewide in spring 2009. Only 48 percent of South Dakota students scored proficient that year, but in 2010, 58 percent passed the test. Because states use different tests, it’s not useful to compare technology literacy in South Dakota to the rest of the country. But South Dakota did fare slightly better in 2009 than states that took the same test.
