North Carolina Test of Computer Skills

"North Carolina is the only state thus far to adopt a required test of computer skills. In order to graduate with a high school diploma, all North Carolina students must pass this exam, intended to assess achievement in three areas of computer literacy defined by the North Carolina Standard Course of Study:

  • Understanding “the important issues of a technology-based society and to exhibit ethical behavior in the use of computer technology.”
  • Demonstrating “knowledge and skills in using computer technology.”
  • Using “a variety of computer technologies to access, analyze, interpret, synthesize, apply, and communicate information” (North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, 2005)"

This toolkit serves as a guide to assist schools in addressing student technology literacy as defined by NCLB. The products listed on this website are provided solely for informational purposes, and do not constitute and shall not be construed in whole or part as an endorsement of a vendor or a product by the Georgia Department of Education, the State Board of Education, the State Superintendent of Schools, or any employee or Office of the Department.
