Assessments: Q & A
IT Training created assessment exams for JMU employees. The exams are connected to specific Microsoft Office 2010 courses that we teach; including Excel Basic, Word Basic, and PowerPoint Basic.
If you successfully pass the specific assessment, you will not need to take the related IT Training course.
Example: If you register for the Excel: Basic assessment and successfully pass it, you do not need to take the Excel: Basic course. Since you already know the topics covered in that specific course, you can register for the Excel: Intermediate course.
Some skills listed on the Skills Inventory connect with the specific topic included on the assessment. View our Skills Inventory page to review topics.
If you pass the specific assessment connected to the specific module in Module 5 Technology, you will not need to take the specific IT Training course. Table below shows the assessments connected to the specific modules:
