Certiport Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC³)

"Certiport offers the Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC³), which provides core skills and knowledge necessary to validate basic knowledge and the ability to use computer hardware, software, and the Internet productively. IC³ effectively tests computing knowledge and skills to ensure mastery is achieved. Gives a resume-building standard certification as proof of successful completion of the program.
Provides the foundation necessary to further enhance productivity and marketability with other desktop application-specific certifications.

Educators find IC³ meets No Child Left Behind standards while providing the following benefits: Data-driven decision making through reporting to show successful completion of NCLB requirements, unbiased examination through psychometrically validated certification exams, universal portability and relevance as a recognized global standard in digital literacy, a ready solution that is more cost effective and time efficient than assembling an assessment to meet national or local educational requirements, a professional development tool that boosts instructor confidence to integrate technology in the classroom." -- Source: Vendor Website
