An exploratory factor analysis was conducted on data (n=105) from a Technology Competence Survey merged from two valid and reliable instruments originally created to measure the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS). The purpose was to develop a solid self-appraisal instrument that highlighted the most important technology integration descriptor skills preservice teachers felt competent as they graduated from a teacher preparation program. Results indicate that the scores produced by the instrument are reliable and valid. The five-factor solution accounted for 67.72% of the explained variance and key descriptors identified students' strengths and weakness to apply technology in educational settings. Results suggest those issues the program needs to revise; in particular, those related to modeling integration of technology into the planning and implementation of curriculum; use of technology for collaborating within learning environments and searching appropriate research and content area resource to enhance teaching.
