Technology Proficiency Information
Some academic departments have chosen to maintain the requirement for certain majors (Business, Teacher Education, and Nursing, to name a few). Students should check with their academic advisors to see whether there is a technology proficiency requirement in their majors.
What is the Technology Proficiency exam?
For the departments that still require students to demonstrate
technology proficiency: one option for demonstrating appropriate
skill is the "Technology Proficiency Exam".
The examination consists of four individual tests covering Computer Literacy, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint. A score of 70% or higher in each content area is required to fulfill the technology proficiency.
If a student passes three of the four content areas, the student need only retake the exam for the one area he/she did not pass.
However, if a student fails two or more of the content areas, he/she must take (and pass) all four content area exams to fulfill the technology proficiency requirement.
