Sample Assessments

21st Century Skills Assessment tests offer two types of questions:

Performance-based 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 questions are used to assess the students' knowledge of vocabulary or specific versions of software that the performance-based questions cannot assess.
