They think they know it, but really are not that proficient. I'm going to my Dean with requests from our Industry Advisors to make it a requirement by all students at our College. We're also hoping to get involved with a SAM Challenge as a pre-test at the beginning of the semester for all students, just to prove how little they know!

Hi There Sandy and all,
Just think about developmental students for a moment. I believe that the high schools have deleted the Microsoft/computer course from the curriculum. The first week, I will be discussing simple computer tasks and how to send an e-mail through our learning mangement system.
I am with you on the crusade to require a pretest to see how much they actually know. I would love for students taking an online course to have an orientation before signing up for the class.
