The purpose of this study was to explore differences in perceived level of technology leadership preparation for students of three different online graduate level leadership preparation programs offered at a regional university in southeast Texas. Four hundred seventy-one students responded to the Principal Technology Leadership Assessment (PTLA) survey and three open-response questions asking students which activities they found beneficial, what they would change, and what they would add to program content related to understanding the International Society for Technology (ISTE) Education Standards for Administrators -- Visionary Leadership, Digital Age Learning Culture, Excellence in Professional Practice, Systemic Improvement, and Digital Citizenship (ISTE, 2014, 2018). Study findings indicated there was no statistically significant relationship between the items in each domain and the type of program in which respondents participated. Additionally, there was no statistically significant difference between programs and their performance in two of the five domains: Preparedness to Create a Digital Learning Culture and Digital Citizenship. Additionally, student responses to the three open-response type questions indicated suggestions that may be of interest to Educational Preparation Programs (EPP) concerned with meeting current technology instructional practices as part of an administrative degree or certificate program.
