Introduction to INTIME Alignment with Various Standards

ROSETTA (how Technology as Facilitator of Quality Education Model aligns with standards for teacher education)

ISTE NETS-T (how UNI Pre-Service Teacher Technology Competencies correspond to ISTE NETS-T)

The following charts represent how the components of the Technology as Facilitator of Quality Education Model of the INTIME project align with other assessment standards for  preservice and/or inservice teachers.

I.    The first table shows how all ten (10) components of the Technology as Facilitator of Quality Education Model align with three national and two university-based standards for teacher education.

The NBPTS (National Board for Professional Teaching Standards) Five Core Propositions start the table and serve as a foundation for the chart organization. Consequently, the chart is divided into five columns/categories. NBPTS standards are followed by two other national teacher education standards, NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Preparation) and INTASC (Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium), and three university-based standards, OSFE (Office of Student Field Experiences, UNI), ITQ (Improving Teacher Quality, Renaissance Group) and INTIME. Elements of each of these standards are placed in a column (1-5) in accordance with the issues covered in the category.  

While creating this chart, the following criteria were used to assign a standard element to a particular category:

  1. Decide whether the standard element belongs to only one or several categories.

  2. If the standard element belongs to more than one category, then decide:

          A.   Which category it belongs to the most.

          B.   And/or whether it is equally important in one category as in the other one.

  1. If  two elements of the same standard are in one column cell and the context of one is included in the other, the eliminate one and keep the broader element.

II.    The second table represents how UNI Pre-Service Teacher Technology Competenciescorrespond to ISTE NETS-T.

The UNI Technology Competencies were developed by UNI Teacher Education Faculty to ensure that preservice teachers are prepared to use technology resources to provide learning opportunities. These Competencies represent the Technology component of the INTIME Technology as Facilitator of Quality Education Model.
