The WebPercent Personal and Small Business assessments both consist of a series of questions broken into sections that cover a wide range of topics in the digital technology space. There is a very small percentage of overlap between the questions and sections found in the Personal and Small Business assessments; much of the content is tailored to the specific audiences. Each section contains anywhere from 10 to 20 questions and each question is multiple choice. Both sections and questions are can be assigned a weight based on a number of factors. Similar to most standardized national exams like the GMAT, questions are chosen from a large database and presented at random – no two assessments will be exactly the same; however, each tester will receive a number of questions of varying difficulty throughout the assessment. Because of this variability, taking the assessment several times will not produce the exact same score; however, questions are presented such that your score should be fairly close from one exam to the next. The one caveat to this is utilization. WebPercent is an assessment that covers three primary areas of digital technology: 1) Knowledge, 2) Access, 3) and Usage. Your knowledge and access may not change greatly month over month, but if your utilization of the Web, Social Media and Productivity Apps goes up, you will score higher in those sections that ask more questions related to Usage.
So, without giving away too many “family secrets” we hope this gives you some guidance into how the assessment is designed.
Personal vs. Business Assessment
We currently only offer a free personal assessment that gives you an overall score with green, yellow, red indicators to help you determine which sections you are strongest versus weakest. A paid personal assessment will eventually be made available that gives you more specifics and resources to boost your score.
The WebPercent Small Business assessment is free, but invite only while under development. Once this becomes publicly available, there will only be a paid version of this assessment.
The algorithm for determining the WebPercent score of a tester is proprietary and attempts to quantify the body of knowledge and level of digital technology utilization by the tester. This score is in no way an indicator of a person's intelligence, education, social status or other characterization. It should not be used in any way to be a predictor in the future success or failure of a person or company. The data provided is strictly informational and for the exclusive use by the individual or company taking the assessment. We will not share in any form the results of any tests unless authorized to do so by the test taker in writing.
