The Elementary and Secondary Education Act does require student technological proficiency by 8th grade. Like other components of NCLB, the states are required to develop and implement accountability measures.

In Wisconsin, schools that receive Title dollars are required to demonstrate how many students are technologically literate at 8th grade, and by which measure.

While each district is left to determine how it is measured, it does indeed have some teeth in our state. We have had ESEA audits and have had to produce documentation of how our assessments align with standards and for how technology standards are included throughout the curriculum.
