Introduction

Technology and Engineering Standards


The CTE-S (TEC) Technology and Engineering Standards course in Learnbps is Bismarck Public School District's current progress on prioritizing and deconstructing standards to provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn. The standards are designed to provide guidance so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help students. Plus help students reflect on the knowledge and skills that they need for success.


Identifier Explanation

TEC-MS.4.3.04

The Bismarck Public School District Standards-Based Progress Report displays grades at the concept level. Therefore Bismarck Public School District has modified the North Dakota DPI Identifiers to fit into our student information system PowerSchool for Standards-Based grading. Above is a CTE-Standards TEC identifier with smaller muted text showing the addition  to the identifier that are the components that BPS adds to the State code.



Technology and Engineering
Education Practices

The technology and engineering practices comprise abilities and disposition that are fundamental to student success. These practices help students engage with the human-designed products, systems and processes we use to satisfy our needs and wants.

TEP-1: Systems Thinking refers to the understanding that technologies contain interconnected components and that these technologies interact with the environments in which they operate and includes the universal systems model.

TEP-2: Creativity is the use of investigation, imagination, innovative thinking and physical skills to accomplish goals.

TEP-3: Making and Doing are at the heart of what make technology & engineering education so different from other fields. Students design, model, build and use technical products and systems.

TEP-4: Critical Thinking involves questioning, logical thinking, reasoning and elaboration in the process of making informed decisions. It also involves analytical thinking; an important component.

TEP-5: Optimism refers to a commitment to finding better solutions to design challenges through experimentation, modeling and adaptation. It reflects a positive view as well as persistence in looking for solutions to technological problems and challenges.

TEP-6: Collaboration refers to having the perspective, knowledge, capabilities and willingness to seek out and include team members when working on design challenges.

TEP-7: Communication in technology and engineering can be either to define problems by gaining an understanding of the wants and needs of the user of technology or as a means of developing and explaining choices made in the design process.

TEP-8: Attention to Ethics is at the core of being a human in society. Attention to ethics means focusing on the impact of technological products, systems and process on others and on the environment. Students should evaluate risks and consider trade-offs in their decision making.

Technology and Engineering
Education Contexts

The technology and engineering contexts are grouped into eight areas that broadly represent the breadth of technological activity. Contexts are vehicles for teaching and applying core disciplinary standards and practices.
