- Assessments are available in 12 basic digital literacy skills:
- Basic Computer Skills

- Windows 10
- Mac OS X
- MS Word
- MS Excel
- MS PowerPoint
- Social Media
- Info Literacy

Note: You can assess your digital literacy skills in each NorthStar skill area (module) only once per day. In other words, you can take all twelve modules only once a day These sessions will be un-proctored and will not lead to a NorthStar Certificate.
To EARN your NorthStar Certificate in each of the above skill areas you must schedule a PROCTORED session. Proctored NDLA Sessions are offered at your local neighborhood library. Please call for dates and times. You can take each NDLA module only once during a scheduled proctored session. If you score 85% or better, you will be awarded the NDLA Certificate. The number of certificates you earn will depend on the time allotted for the proctored session, the pace at which you complete each assessment, and your score of 85% or better on each assessment.
If you score lower than 85%, we suggest you take an online tutorial in the areas needing improvement before you take the proctored assessment again.
