This test is very helpful for institutions and for faculty who are offering online courses or programs and want students to make an informed decision in following an online course. With the development of technology we also tend to assume that students possess the needed and expected skills to study online, however practice shows the opposite; or at least it shows that not all students have the skills and sometimes they don't know which skills are required to be a successful online student.
