SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act

early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB 
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the 
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat 
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal

its statutory obligations. The Director, Regulatory Information

containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission 
of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped 
by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g.

Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and 
proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of

    Abstract: The LevTech study will document and describe the 
technology experiences incorporated into pre-service teacher 
preparation programs, as well as document how teachers currently use 
technology in their classrooms. Clearance is being requested for the 
multiple case study research design, sampling strategy, and data 
collection activities to be undertaken by the LevTech study. These 
collections will gather in-depth information on ten teacher education 
programs. Data collected from the selected teacher education programs 
will include a maximum of 15 individual interviews (educational 
technology faculty, methods faculty, preservice teachers), as well as a 
maximum of ten induction teacher graduates of the teacher education 
program (graduated in the last five years). Within each case, we will 
collect information from two different constructs: (1) the teacher 
education program (documents, website, educational technology faculty, 
methods faculty, preservice teachers) and (2) induction teacher 
graduates of the teacher education program (1-5 years).
