21st Century Skills Assessment tests offer two types of questions:
Students authentically demonstrate that they can navigate within spreadsheet, word processor, database, browser, and presentation applications, and perform complex tasks. The simulated software has realistic menus and functionality and is deliberately generic, not representing any specific software brand or version. This generic representation enables the assessment to measure durable technology literacy skills that students need as they encounter different software at school, home, libraries, online, and in the future.
Multiple Choice Questions
Multiple choice and rote, memory-based sequence questions would not assess the students' ability to perform a software task, and the correct answer would typically only be true of one brand and specific version of the software.
