The Northstar Digital Literacy Certificate program is a free self-guided online set of assessments that show your ability to perform basic computer tasks. You can earn a certificate in each of these areas:
How to get started using Northstar Digital Literacy Assessment
Returning Northstar Digital Users
Earning a Northstar Certificate
Individuals who receive a score of at least 85% on a proctored assessment completed at a testing location can earn the Northstar Digital Literacy Certificate. Those successfully completing multiple assessment modules have the option of receiving a summary certificate listing all modules passed.
Those passing assessments can also claim digital badges from Northstar, which follow the OpenBadges specification (read more at https://openbadges.org/about/). Badges are a way to display and document skills learned both in and out of the classroom. Once a test taker is awarded a badge, it is stored in the test taker's Backpack, a webpage that serves as a transportable portfolio to share with employers or others who need to know a user's skills and experience. Badges are an ideal means by which Northstar test takers can keep a permanent, accessible record of assessments they have passed.
