There is a Feedback Survey: On each Thing Graduation Page. Please encourage students to provide some constructive feedback. They are encouraged to send their ideas on how to improve the activities. Their ideas are used to improve the site to meet their needs better.

Some changes made based on student feedback:

  • brought about the Student Checklists
  • identified the need to add more interactive or game activities
  • identifies Things and Quests to be updated

This is a self-reporting basic technology skill survey (that can also be used as a Pre and Post skill survey).

There are two options:

1. Use the ProProfs online version of the survey

  • Use the survey links provided to have students take it using the ProProfs website. The only requirement to take the survey is the student's first name and last name initial, no emails or ids should be used. 
  • Students will select between two responses to each of the 30 technology skill statements provided: "I need to learn" or "I Can Do It." The "I need to learn" responses will be shown as incorrect to help students identify learning goals on the final report. 
  • Each technology skill statement is followed by the 21t4s "Thing" which identifies where they can learn the information in the 21t4s site. Example: (1.Basics).
  • Students should check with their teacher about saving their report of their results: download them as a PDF, or to print them out.

Note: There is an assessment bank of multiple-choice questions available in the Teacher Resources log-in area.

 This icon is found on the side menu of each "Thing and Quest page" indicating a teacher guide.

The Teacher Guides page contains links to each of the 21 Thing Teacher Guides.

In 2018 Michigan adopted the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE-S) "Standards for Students". Michigan named these MITECS, or the Michigan Integrated Technology Competencies for Students

The Michigan Techplan.org site has posted an age band articulation document and a sample set of scenarios.


"The ISTE Standards provide the competencies for learning, teaching and leading with technology, and are a comprehensive road map for the effective use of technology in schools worldwide."

They provide standards

  1. For Students
  2. For Educators
  3. For Education Leaders
  4. For Coaches

The 21things4students received the ISTE Seal of Approval for years 2016-2022 when our site applied for a review of our activities aligned to their standards.
