Sponsoring Sites

If you are a library, Adult Basic Education site, workforce center, nonprofit, or similar organization in Minnesota, you may want to complete a process to become an approved site. This will allow you to award the Northstar Digital Literacy Certificates once the online assessments are satisfactorily completed at your site(s). It will also allow you to access detailed data about testing results at your site(s).

What sites award the Certificate?

A number of organizations in Minnesota proctor assessments so that certificates may be earned. There is no cost to learners to earn certificates at any of these sites, but you must call the organization ahead of time to ask about days and times when proctors are available.

How does an organization become a sponsoring site?

Currently, there are two kinds of sponsoring sites: those that award (proctor) the certificate, and those that don't. All sponsoring sites first complete a comprehensive application process and pay a small annual maintenance fee. Sponsoring sites that that award the certificate must also go through online proctoring training. For information on applying to become a sponsor site, contact us at the email address below. If you're ready to sign up, click here to apply.

Information for Existing Sponsoring Sites

If you are an existing sponsoring site and need access to your learners' data, you will need to contact your site's coordinator. If you don't know who this is and would like assistance, please contact support@digitalliteracyassessment.org.
