Practice what you have learnt with ICDL Diagnostic Assessments

Find out your existing digital skill level with practice tests, known as ICDL Diagnostic Assessments. ICDL Diagnostic Assessments are designed to help you understand your existing digital skill level. They show you what you’re good at, where you need to develop your skills, and if you’re ready for an ICDL Certification Test. Diagnostic Tests are online, easy to use, and you get immediate results. We recommend that you don’t move onto the certification test until you have achieved 80% or higher in your diagnostic test.

Take the ICDL Certification Test and get certified

ICDL Certification Tests look and feel just like our Diagnostic Assessments, so you can focus on the questions and prove you meet the ICDL Digital Skills Standard. Special ‘in-application’ technology means that you will complete activities in the same apps you use everyday and you will receive your results immediately on screen, along with a breakdown of the results by category.

If you achieve 75% or over, you are ICDL certified for that module.

Share your digital badge and certificate

Every time you pass an ICDL module you will receive an ICDL digital badge as well as an ICDL Profile Certificate, which is updated to include each new module you successfully complete. Sharing your ICDL digital credential with others is easy and demonstrates your digital skills proficiency.
