Pathways for Success
There are several pathways to learn the material necessary to take this assessment.
- If you are already very familiar with Information Technology and Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, & Excel, go ahead and log in to take the ITCCA assessment.
- If you are relatively familiar with Information Technology and Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, & Excel, but aren't sure you know enough, there are refresher tutorials embedded in the assessment, log in to use the Pre-assessment Resources to go over all the topics that will be in the assessment. Alternatively, you can take a free self-paced tutorial online such as https://www.gcflearnfree.org/subjects/office/.
- If you take the ITCCA assessment and pass (get a 70%), you have completed this part of the prerequisite for BUS 275. Your ITCCA assessment score will be transferred to myKU so that you can register for BUS275 in the future. (You must also pass MAT105 or higher in order to register for BUS 275).
- If you take the ITCCA assessment the first time and fail, you must go through the refresher tutorials before you can take a second attempt.
- If you take the ITCCA assessment a second time and fail, you must go through the in-depth tutorials before you can take a third attempt.
- If you take the ITCCA assessment a third and final time, and still fail, you must take an introductory course such as CSC 101 or BUS 171 before you can register for BUS 275.
