The research surveyed 214 teachers from 10 primary schools in the Southeast region of Macedonia . The Technique Modeling with Structural Equations was used to determine the relative strength of influence of factors on ICT competencies of teachers and the relative strength of the factors affecting the frequency of use of ICT in teaching. The results show that 25% of the teachers have below basic ICT Competency, 17% of teachers have basic knowledge and skills to operate a computer, and the highest percentage, 58% of teachers with proficient ICT competence.
