Adults who are unsure about their basic computer skills now have a way to easily assess what they know, pinpoint what they need to learn and earn a certificate that shows employers what they know.

The Northstar Basic Computer Skills Certificate program, offered through a partnership between the Nobles County Library and Worthington Adult Basic Education, is aimed at helping adults acquire the skills they need in today’s workplace.

Anyone can access the modules and take the tests online at www.digitalliteracyassessment.org. At the end of each test, the user receives a page of results, which lists the skills that have been mastered and the areas that need improvement.
