The National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) were revised in 2008, less than eight years after their initial publication. Though the constantly shifting technological landscape may necessitate such a rapid reexamination of national standards, providing peer-reviewed empirical research to support the use of those standards takes a great deal of time. This study investigated the extent to which researchers were able to report the results of studies on the effectiveness of the original NETS-T during their short lifespan. The Education Resources Information Center database only contained three empirical research articles on the NETS-T, and all three lacked specific traits of rigorous research. The issue of rapidly changing technology and slow research methods is discussed as a possible explanation for this dearth of defensible research.
