The STAT is designed to help you assess practical and theoretical ICT knowledge and ability to use common applications. In addition the potential to acquire the skills necessary to use ICT effectively is analysed by measuring underlying thinking skills. Usability and control of the mouse and keyboard are also tested. Assessment of these abilities is based on the latest DfE and Ofqual criteria for functional and key skills and covers all levels. The STAT is designed to help you make early and informed judgements about learners skills so that valuable resources are targeted effectively.

Primarily the STAT is used within FE, HE and by training providers and larger employers for initial assessment prior to entry or soon after. An age appropriate version is also available for use by specialist schools to aid recruitment. The STAT is a forward-looking diagnostic test that predicts how well a learner will cope with the ICT requirements of a course, training programme or job. The STAT can either be web-delivered or administered using installable client software.

There are currently two versions of the STAT.
