A new study by the University of Alcalá, an ECDL Accredited Test Centre, has looked into the performance of over 400 people in ECDL testing. The study, which used the anonymised results of 2,351 ECDL tests, was conducted in cooperation with ATI, the Spanish ECDL National Operator. It found that there was no significant difference in performance of candidates based on their gender, but that, in a number of areas, young candidates, up to the age of 26, do worse than those over the age of 45, confirming the fallacy of the ‘digital native’.

The complete report is available (in Spanish) on the website of the University of Alcalá.

More information on Digital Native Fallacy can be found on ecdl.org website.
