Digital Literacy: Teaching a New
IC3 Global Standard
What is IC3?
A global certification standard and exams to educate
and evaluate Internet and computing/communication
technology literacy (ICTL)
> Available in 13 languages and 50+ countries
> The basis of K-12 and higher education
Digital Literacy/Technology Literacy programs
> Based on standards created by the Global
Digital Literacy Council (GDLC)
> Developed as a partnership between
Certiport, Inc. and First Advantage
Certiport
> The global leader in performance-based
certification programs
> Managers of Microsoft’s Office certification
program (MCAS), as well as programs from
Adobe and other companies/organizations
First Advantage
> Formerly SkillCheck, Inc.
> Specialists in performance-based
assessment (including CourseAssess)

> Co-Author of The National Educational Technology
Standards for Students (NETS*S): Resources for
Assessment, published by the International Society for
Technology in Education (ISTE)
What is ICTL?
> Computer Literacy (1980s)
> Internet Literacy (library field)
> Digital Literacy (Paul Gilster, 1997)
> Fluency with Information Technology or FiTness (National Research
Council, 1999)
• Current (or “contemporary”) computer skills
• Foundational concepts
• Cognitive and problem-solving abilities
> OECD PISA Study, e-skills (UK), MEXT (Japan), US state and
international standards
> Global informal consensus regarding what defines ICTL
Defining ICTL – The IC3 Standard
> Literature review
> Development of examination blueprints by subject-matter experts
(SMEs) under the direction of a psychometrician specializing in IT
certification exam development
> Review of blueprint by Global Digital Literacy Council
> Updated blueprints reviewed/content validated by hundreds of
subject-matter experts
> Content validation exam blueprints used as the basis for:
• Exam development
• Curriculum – Provided to publishers (including Course)

Measuring ICTL – IC3 Exams
> Created using test-development principles used in the certification
and educational testing/licensure fields
> Must pass three examinations (Computing Fundamentals, Key
Applications, Living Online)
> 3-4 domains/45 questions for each 45 minute exam
> Performance based items (measuring skills) and linear items
(measuring knowledge) in each exam
> Automatically scored
> Criterion Validated
> Translated into multiple languages
Measuring Skills – PerformanceBased Test Items
Measuring Knowledge – Linear
Test Items
Measuring Success
IC3 Global Standard 3 (GS3)
> Third generation of IC3 standard and exam development
> Maintaining three-exam structure and use of performance-based
content (high reliability)
> Changes to assumptions about the “average user”
• Fewer limitation/more choices
• More of us are now constantly connected
• Social networking/Web 2.0 - Moving from locating and
evaluating to creating online content
• “We are all just content providers now.”
GS3 - New Areas of Study
> Electronic Mail  Electronic Communication
• E-mail
• Instant messaging/text messaging
• Blogs and social network sites
• Online audio and video
> Understanding how content is created, located and evaluated
• User as information producer and informed consumer
> Web 2.0 concepts woven through all three IC3 modules
Your Course: The Challenges
• Students enter the course with varying levels of
•
•
•
•
computer expertise
Students have different learning styles
Many students have not yet developed effective
college-level learning skills
Many students don’t like to read
For some students English is a second language
The Bar
Regardless of the
diverse “input,” at the
end of the course all
students are expected
to pass over a “bar”
labeled “What every
college educated
person should know
about computers.”
