Over the last decade, the basic skills to operate a computer (ICT skills)are an essential requirement to participate in the current digital era. People not
possessing these skills are likely to miss access to education, entertainment, business and social life. In particular for people with cognitive limitations, this is a
real threat. In the EasyICT project, we aimed at the development of a training and assessment framework, supported by an on-line tool. Using this tool youngsters
with mental disabilities can be systematically tested for their ICT skills. As a result, they receive a report and additional training material in order to improve their skills.
