Digital Literacy Self-Assessment
|This Self-Assessment is designed to help you determine
if you will need additional training or practice to meet the computer-related
requirements of your degree program. It is divided into 9 parts:
General Computer Knowledge
File Management Knowledge
System Maintenance and Security Knowledge
Word Processing Skills
Communications Skills (email, listservs)
Databases, Searching and Information Integrity
At the end of each part, total your points for that section,
and based on the total, make a decision about whether or not you need to
seek additional training in that area:
If you score above 16 points for any particular section,
you probably have the skill level you need to use a computer in that area
for your program.
If you score between 10 and 15, you seem to have a
significant amount of familiarity but we suggest you continue to give yourself
opportunities to work with a computer and become even more familiar with
that particular aspect**.
If you score below 10, you need to get additional
training and/or practice**.
