Volunteers are needed for testing of the updated version of the ePotential Survey – the Digital Learning Survey 2016.
The ePotential ICT Capabilities Survey supports teachers to measure their confidence and capability to incorporate digital technologies into their learning and teaching. The ePotential survey is based around a continuum of teacher ICT capabilities that assesses teacher capability within this framework.
The current ePotential survey has provided participating teachers and schools with yearly data since it was introduced in 2007. This year will be the last time that teachers will be able to answer this version of the survey to collect comparison data. Teachers and schools will still be able to access this comparison data after the survey has closed.
The Digital Learning and STEM Branch have been working on a new version of the ePotential survey. The current survey questions have been updated to align with the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) Australian Professional Teacher Standards, the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Teaching in the Digital Age and the new Digital Technologies curriculum.
To assist in applying weightings to the updated survey we require as many teachers as possible to test the updated survey questions. Your responses from the test survey will provide valuable information that will assist in streamlining the final survey questions (and hopefully make the survey shorter!).
To access the test survey:
- Go to ePotential: http://epotential.education.vic.gov.au
- Click on the Take Survey Now link in the Survey window
- Click on the My Surveys tab

The survey will take about 20 minutes.
The test version of the survey is open now and will close at 6 p.m. on 18 December 2015.
Please note the whole site will be getting a makeover to improve format and functionality.
The updated ePotential Survey – the Digital Learning Survey 2016 will be available for schools to take at the beginning of Term 1, 2016. The updated survey will be mapped to a new continuum framework with links to updated resources.
If you would like to provide additional feedback on the updated survey, please send it to: email@example.com
The Digital Learning and STEM Branch really appreciate your time and effort in undertaking the testing of the survey.
