This paper describes the theoretical construction, statistical validity and reliability of a survey instrument designed to measure teachers’ Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) – ‘the total package’ (Koehler & Mishra, 2008). The Teaching With ICT Audit Survey (TWictAS) contains scales that measure teachers’ interest in and attitudes towards using ICT; confidence to use ICT with students for specific teaching and learning tasks (TPACK); access to ICT and the Internet; competency with ICT applications; Technology Knowledge (TK); and their TPACK Vocational Self-efficacy. The scale measuring the teachers’ TPACK confidence makes use of the Learning With ICTs: Measuring ICT Use in the Curriculum instrument that has been extensively evaluated and reported in the literature to be both a statistically and theoretically robust measure of curriculum integration of ICT (Authors, 2007). This paper proposes that in conjunction with scales to measure TK and TPACK Vocational Self-efficacy, the TWictAS provides a valid, reliable and multi-dimensional instrument with which to audit teachers’ TPACK.
