The Northstar Digital Literacy Assessment defines the basic skills needed to use a computer and the internet in daily life, employment, and higher education. Online, self-guided modules assess the ability of adults to perform these tasks. Test takers can receive digital badges whenever they pass assessments, and can additionally receive certificates when they pass assessments in a proctored environment at a Northstar testing location. Once you pass Northstar, which certifies basic skills, you may choose to pursue more advanced training and certifications.
