North Carolina Tests of Computer Skills Student Handbook.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
In May, 1991, the North Carolina State Board of Education, as part of the Quality Assurance Program, established a computer proficiency requirement for graduation that was then modified in 1995 and made effective beginning with the graduating class of 2001. Students who were in the eighth grade during the 1996-97 school year and thereafter must meet the computer proficiency requirement in order to receive a high school diploma. This handbook was prepared as a resource for students, parents, and teachers to provide information about the computer skills proficiency requirement and its implications for students as a graduation requirement. The handbook consists of five sections: (1) "Questions About the Computer Skills Requirement"; (2) "Contents of the Computer Skills Test"; (3)"How To Take the Computer Skills Test"; (4) "Test Taking Strategies"; and (5) "Sample Test."
