The following self-assessment of your computer skills will help you gauge your ability to be successful in an online course. Check the box that describes your skill level. After completion of this assessment, print this page and use it as a guide to improve skills in which you are not proficient.
Proficient: To mark yourself as proficient in a skill, you must know and be able to do the following:
* verbally define the term mentioned
* perform the skill
* show and tell someone else how to perform the skill
NOTICE: If you are NOT PROFICIENT with any of these terms or skills, you
should expect challenges using the technology required in an online
course. Your instructor and PASS staff should not be expected
to define, teach or help you with any of these skills. It is therefore
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you become proficient with each of these
skills, BEFORE the first day of class.
