In the interest of learning how to effectively use the technological literacy standards and of adhering to education regulation, this article focuses on efforts to improve the professional teaching practices of Technology and Engineering Education (TEE) teachers by using the Gareis and Grant (2015) process with respect to "Standards for Technological Literacy" ("STL"). This article follows from a session that co-author Gareis provided for Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers in a mid-sized urban school division in which lead author White served as director. The authors review terminology required to develop better assessments and to improve the test-item writing process. They briefly describe the components of Gareis and Grant's (2015) process. The authors demonstrate the use of this process by applying it to an "STL" standard and an accompanying assessment.
