About This Course[edit source]
The University of New South Wales: Computer Skills Assessment Framework defines skills by grade level, with this course's levels equivalent to the following primary and secondary grade levels:
- Basic - 3rd and 4th grade skills
- Intermediate - 5th and 6th grade skills
- Advanced - 7th and 8th grade skills
- Expert - 9th and 10th grade skills
In designing a course that could be used by adults, labeling the sections with primary and secondary grade levels was inappropriate. A search of level labeling for these types of activities returns basic, intermediate, advanced and expert as appropriate terms, so those are the designations this course uses. Basic, intermediate, and advanced are consistent with the levels of difficulty introduced. Expert would be expert only in comparison to the other levels, but would not qualify as expert in the typical industry certification sense. Those courses will be developed later under different titles.
