Digital capabilities: Assess yourself

A guide to help you with basic and more advanced digital skills for university learning

Assessing digital capabilities

Use the Digital Capabilities Self-Assessment Tool to find out how capable you are, and how you can upskill if you need to.

The tool was built in 2021 by two Library Student Interns, Dara Tafazoli and Moosa Hassan, and aligns with the Digital Capabilities Framework. It is made up of survey questions for each capability, and your results can be saved in a downloadable file. We do not collect any data, it stays with you.

Once you have your results you can investigate LinkedIn Learning and library resources to help you to learn more about the different digital capabilities.

Have a go and find out how digitally capable you can be!

If you have any feedback please complete our feedback form, or contact the Coordinator, Digital Library Programs.
