Where do you fall on the tech savvy scale? There’s now a test you can take to find out.
Ofcom, the English telecommunications regulatory agency, recently created a digital literacy quiz to measure people’s awareness of technology and communications. It gave the test to 800 children and 2,000 adults, asking about apps, Google Glass, smartwatches and other cutting-edge tech. Each participant was then assigned a “digital quotient” score.
The agency found that 14- and 15-year-olds are the most tech savvy, averaging the highest scores – around 113. (The average was 100.) Six-year-olds and the average 45-year-old have about the same level of confidence around technology, clocking in slightly under 100.
Curious about how you stack up? Ofcom has put an abbreviated version of their digital literacy quiz online. Completing the test only takes a few minutes and you can get your score instantly.
