What is the Computer Assessment?

Liberty University strives for each student to attain technological proficiency and thus requires that all students complete a technology competency requirement.

Students must either pass the Computer Assessment OR complete Information Technology 110.

Computer Assessment

  • There is a one-time $15 fee for the Computer Assessment
  • The Computer Assessment is offered at the beginning of each semester
  • The passing score is 70%
  • The computer assessment tests skills in MS Office 2010 and is taken in three separate parts:
    • Word
    • Excel
    • Powerpoint
    • Computer Concepts
  • Look at the concepts and skills page to help you prepare for the assessment.

OR

  • Complete Information Technology 110 during your first 45-hours at Liberty or first year if a transfer student
    • Transfer students who have transferred in a course substituted for INFT 110 have satisfied the technology competency and information literacy requirement and do not need to take further steps.

When do I take the Computer Assessment?

The Computer Assessment will not proctored on campus and will be available online in the Spring 2015 Session.

If you choose to take the Computer Assessment, it will be available online during times posted in your Blackboard account. You can access the assessment through Blackboard and it will link you to a Pearson account.

Please note: If you do not take the assessment during this time period, you will need to take INFT 110 in the fall semester.

Transfer students who have transferred in a computer course that has been substituted for INFT 110 have satisfied the technology competency requirement and do not need to take further steps.

Students opting to take the Computer Assessment will be charged a one-time fee of $15 to cover the cost of the Computer Assessment software (myitlab).

The actual assessment will take approximately (1 1/2) hours.  Therefore, allow a minimum of 2 hours of uninterrupted time at the computer when taking the computer assessment.

What happens if I do not pass?

To ensure that Liberty students are proficient in computer technology, they are required to take Information Technology 110 or pass all areas (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) of the computer assessment. Students who do not pass two areas of the computer assessment in their first semester at Liberty are required to take INFT 110 within their first 45 credit hours or first year at Liberty if a transfer student. Students passing all but one area of the assessment will be required to take a one credit course (within their first 45 credit hours or first year at Liberty if a transfer student) in the area which they did not pass (INFT 102-Powerpoint, INFT 103-Excel, INFT 104-Word).

Passing the computer assessment or INFT 110 will satisfy the technology competency requirement listed on all Degree Completion Plans (DCP). Transfer students who have substituted a computer course for INFT 110 have satisfied the technology competency requirement.

The computer assessment will be available online in the Spring 2015 semester through your INFT 000 blackboard course.
