No Child Left Behind, Title II, Part D Technology Reporting Requirements
The following information is to provide LEAs with guidance on reporting requirements for Title II, Part D of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. This part of NCLB may be cited as the Enhancing Education through Technology Act (EETT) of 2001. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) has been required to report on the progress of districts’ technology literacy as of January 2002. The reporting requirements have been an essential part of the process for documenting progress to support continued technology funding. Since 2002, the results of the North Carolina Computer Skills Tests were used to report the technology literacy of eighth grade students. With the elimination of the computer skills tests effective with the 2009–10 school year, LEAs are now required to report annually to the NCDPI the technology literacy of each eighth grade student.

Federal Requirement to Report Eighth Grade Technology Literacy
One of the goals of the Enhancing Education through Technology Act of 2001 is to "assist every student in crossing the digital divide by ensuring that every student is technologically literate by the time the student finishes the eighth grade, regardless of the student's race, ethnicity, gender, family income, geographic location, or disability."
Reporting Eighth Grade Technology Literacy For the 2009–10 school year, LEAs are required to fulfill the NCLB Title II, Part D Technology Reporting requirements. LEAs have maximum flexibility in deciding how eighth grade student technology literacy will be determined. The following resources are available to assist LEAs:
