In the same style as our assessment content for Autodesk and Bentley Systems' technical software apps, our system provides Adobe users with a live online skills test experience, presenting a mix of theory and task-based questions. (Theory questions can be answered without opening InDesign; task-based questions require a copy of the software). A test takes on average 30-60 mins, depending on the experience of the user. At the end, candidates can view a detailed test report, complete with feedback, coaching notes and suggestions for further training workshops.
Having spent the past 7 years or so, involved solely in the Autodesk and Bentley space, it's quite a treat to be adding a third major vendor to our portfolio of assessment offerings!
Over the coming months, we have the following additional assessments planned:
Adobe Photoshop for occasional users (CS5) – early 2011
Adobe InDesign fundamentals (CS5) – Spring 2011
Adobe Illustrator for occasional users (CS5) – Spring 2011
Adobe Photoshop fundamentals (CS5) – Spring/Summer 2011
Adobe Acrobat 9 fundamentals – Summer 2011
If you'd like to trial the new InDesign test, drop us a line or use the contact form on the main KS website. Enterprise customers will see the new modules appear in their dashboards, as soon as we go live.
