IT Fitness Test is the biggest and most comprehensive way to test the digital skills of primary and secondary school students and teachers in Central Europe.

IT Fitness Test was first organised in Slovakia in 2010 as part of e-Skills week organised by the European Commission. Over the past twelve editions, nearly 550,000 respondents used the test to verify their level of digital skills. Since 2022, the project has received broad support in the Visegrad countries not only from the public sector, but also from the most important ICT stakeholders in the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary. Additionally, since 2023, we also offer the possibility to take the test in Ukrainian language. English version of the test is also available. During the last year, IT Fitness Test was completed by almost 150,000 participants.

IT Fitness Test validates skills and competences, not theoretical knowledge taught at schools within educational curricula. The test focuses on practical skills and competences in the following areas in accordance with DigComp framework:

  • Internet
  • Security and Computer Systems
  • Complex Tasks
  • Office Tools
  • Social Media and Collaborative Tools

Respondents can use all tools available – Internet, search engines, smartphones etc.

The test is available for registered users on website in 2 versions:

  • Elementary schools (20 questions)
    • For students in last 2 grades of elementary schools and fresh graduates with the aim to verify their preparedness for high school studies
  • High schools and universities (25 questions)
    • For students in high schools and universities with the aim to verify their preparedness for further studies and labour market
    • Suitable also for teachers and public

The test usually takes 45-60 minutes, however, can be saved and respondents can come back to finishing. After completing the test, each respondent receives a certificate with a complete result as well as information about their results in various test categories.

IT Fitness Test not only provides the opportunity to test the level of skills, but also provides access to various relevant resources and tools for further development and education.
