iSkills by ETS

ETS (Educational Testing Service) had a corner booth at the American Library Association exhibits. The ICT Literacy assessment of student information and communications technology skills is ready for prime time! We've heard about it being tested for several years. The product name is iSkills. Check it out -- take the iSkills tour.

Looks like the time is right for academic and high school librarians to position this as a measurement. Strong library programs are a solution for preparing students for 21st Century learning and careers, and iSkills looks like a well-considered and tested way to assess academic gaps or shortcomings.
