Views: 681

The California State University (23 campuses) and several other two and four-year higher education institutions have partnered with Educational Testing Service (www.ets.org) to develop the ICT Literacy Assessment, a new performance-based, web-based, interactive tool designed to measure students' cognitive skills within a digital environment.

The findings of the assessment helps institutions plan curriculum to address ICT literacy gaps, provides evidence for accreditation purposes, verifies ICT literacy skills that students need to enter the workforce or in graduate school, and has the potential to certify that graduates have the cognitive and technical skills needed by employers in this globally connected, multicultural world. The ICT Literacy Assessment (www.ets.org/ictliteracy) has been proved as the right test-at the right time-for higher education.
