Assessment of the IC literacy of graduates of 9th grades of the Republic of Belarus using IC Literacy Test

On May, 21-23, a pre-pilot on-line assessment of the IC literacy of students of the Brest and the Gomel region was held as part of the grant under the Small Grants Programme.

The presence of a stable Internet channel allowed to make the assessment using the local WINDOWS assembly.

During the assessment, students completed a sequence of 16 test items of varying complexity. Students could find out the level of their information and communication literacy immediately after passing the assessment, and each of them received individual recommendations for improving it.

120 people took part in the assessment, 45% of them, according to the results of IC Literacy Test, can be classified as “advanced” users of information and communication technologies.
