This tool is a wizard like implementation, which guides you through a series of questions, preventing you from continuing unless all questions and components are answered.
Initiall you are asked to complete your country and language.
Followed by a series of questions relating to your personal profile. (1-10)Personal Profile

There is no associated documentation as this is not a requirement of this simple evaluation mechanism.
This web-test is user friendly but requires adobe flash player for full use.
The activities and tasks are specifically related to the ECDL Curriculum and an assessment of ICT competence associated with their curriculum as apposed to the general usage of ICT.
Positive it is the fact that the survey is made by almost 20 different languages, and the possibility to compare our digital confidence to our actual levels of digital literacy that they propose. Also, the tool consists of 37 questions and will take approximately 10 minutes.
The link presented in Fiction web page is associated directly at the survey. Even if we try to have a little searching it is quite impossible to understand why this survey exists and which is the meaning or the implication to do it.
At the end, after the comparison between our digital confidence and our actual levels of digital literacy, there are two diagrams showing the skills but the “exit” button connects at a “Page not found”.
We think, in short words, that this tools seems quite old in 2020.
