The paper focuses on a questionnaire evaluating Information and Communication Technology (ICT) implementation among teacher educators in academic colleges of education. It examines components of ICT training as perceived by teacher educators in these colleges, their attitudes towards ICT contribution of for teaching and learning, and the available conditions and resources for ICT implementation. The questionnaire was developed as part of a study focusing on evaluating the implementation of the computerization program and is partly based on a questionnaire developed in a former study conducted in 1999-2000 (Goldstein et.al., 2012). The validity of the questionnaire was examined based on the data collected from a sample of 615 faculty members in 6 education colleges. Findings suggest the questionnaire is reliable and valid, and can be used for measuring ICT implementation in education colleges.
