1.A new framework and test items were developed in order to assess young people's technological literacy to meet real life challenges in the contemporary high-technological society in three industrialized countries, which included Japan, Republic of Korea, and the United States of America.
2.Using them, the assessments of Japanese eighth and eleventh grade students took place in January and February, and of the freshman grade students who enrolled in the university-based technology teacher education programs, in May and June, 2005.
3.The results were as follows ;
(1)The total mean percentages of correct answers ware 38.7%=the eighth grade, 50.8%=the eleventh grade, and 61.8% = the freshman grade.
