This brief paper will introduce an assessment framework, called RAT – Replacement, Amplification, and Transformation, that can be used with preservice and inservice teachers to increase critical decision-making concerning integration of technology into the K-12 classroom. We are currently refining this framework through (a) expanding our literature review to refine conceptual and theoretical categories, (b) subsequently applying the framework to videotaped technology-supported classroom lessons, and (c) working with practicing teachers interested in learning self-assessment techniques to improve their technology integration decision-making.
