Don't forget your Northstar certificates!
When you take the Northstar assessments at a Northstar sponsoring site and pass with a score of 85% or better, you can earn a certificate in one or all of the test areas. Ask your librarian or instructor for more information on taking an assessment and earning this valuable credential today!
Not at a Northstar sponsoring site? You can still take the assessments for free online at www.digitalliteracyassessment.org.
