The iSkills™ assessment is the only test of critical thinking skills in a digital environment that simulates real-world scenarios to get a true measure of your students' knowledge of and ability to function in today's data-rich world.
Unlike other assessments of ICT literacy, the iSkills assessment uses scenarios that require students to complete specific tasks rather than answer multiple-choice questions.
The test is formatted as follows:
|Administration method||Proctored – On-campus

Proctored – Off-campus (using a remote proctor) — Coming Soon!
Must be administered in one session
