Self-assessment of IT skills


Has anyone got an example of a self-assessment of IT skills questionnaire suitable for new students in further or higher education?

  1. IT Skills Self Assessment
    Dear Eddie,

    Microsoft currently have some reasonable skills analysis forms (for Office 2003 admittedly).

    We have downloadable skills analysis forms for MS Office packages available on our website

    However, they are not self-analysis – someone with MS Office knowledge needs to check them.

    If you would like any help, don’t hesitate to get back to me.

  2. IT skills specification
    Dear Marie, thank you for that information, it is very helpful.

    The self-assessment questionnaire is likely to focus on the following IT skills since students will require these in order to cope with the academic demands of their programme.

    Using a computer: working with Microsoft Windows 2000; using a keyboard and mouse; managing files; awareness of IT health and safety issues.

    Word processing (MS Word 2000): creating, saving, closing and opening a document; selecting, deleting, replacing, inserting and moving text; cutting, copying and pasting text; emphasis, font face and font size; alignment, indentation and line spacing; page breaks, page numbering and margins; bullets and numbering; spell checking, grammar checking, word count and printing.

    Spreadsheets (MS Excel 2000): keying in data; editing text in cells; inserting rows and columns; deleting rows and columns; using formulae; absolute referencing; formatting; data-entry and sorting; creating charts; importing a chart into an MS Word document.

    Presentations (MS PowerPoint 2000): skills to be specified.

    Electronic mail (Simeon and Webmail): open, read, delete, compose and send emails; work with email attachments.

    Internet (MS Internet Explorer 5): retrieving information using search engines, web directories and information gateways; accessing academic journals via OVID databases.
