In order for teachers to be successful in a digital age, it is important for them to integrate
technology into their daily instruction. This paper will report on the findings of a study conducted
face-to-face with graduate students in the summer of 2009 and will demonstrate teachers’ ability to
create technology-based formative assessments. Following the final project, graduate students (inservice
teachers) completed a survey indicating their beliefs about the need to integrate technology
into their daily instruction. Findings indicated that in-service teachers believed that they 1.) Have
improved the knowledge of using technology in teaching; 2.)Have more confidence in using technology;
3.) Would like to create more interactive technology-based assessments; 4.) Believe strongly that
their students will engage more in learning and assessment because of the use of technology; and 5.) Believe
they need to integrate more technology into their teaching.
