Abstract: A statewide survey of the infrastructure of teacher education program assessment systems in North Carolina, which include electronic portfolios as a component in the assessment system, measured their ability to meet current and anticipated future data demands for state approval and national accreditation. Almost two-thirds of the 46 teacher education programs in the state responded to questions about the personnel, hardware, and software resources needed to meet current and future demands for data collection, management, analysis, and reporting. Although public and private institutions have common concerns, there were differences in response. While 78% of public teacher education institutions indicated that they had adequate to excellent overall infrastructure to meet current and future needs, only 53% of private or independent institutions reported adequate to excellent overall infrastructure. Public and private institutions indicated different resource needs to address program approval and accreditation demands.
