Certification Matters

Studies show that professionals obtaining digital skills and software certifications can:

  • advance their careers
  • make more money
  • market a recognized level of competency

For students, certification results can provide evidence they possess the digital skills required for many of today’s jobs.

TOSA Assess Certify Code

We Can Put Your Students on a Path to Certification

We have partnered with Isograd, an internationally-recognized assessment and certification provider of digital literacy skills. Together, we offer learners a cost-effective and accessible means to the internationally-recognized TOSA® (Test on Software Applications) certification.

TOSA is the only standard to assess and certify skills with a score that measures proficiency levels from beginner to expert.

TOSA certifications are adaptive and quantify exactly what a learner knows. Instead of simple pass or fail exams, TOSA provides a ranking level and a score from 1 to 1,000 to clearly identify the learner's true level of proficiency.

Cirrus and TOSA Work Together

Using these two side-by-side, students access real-world opportunities to build and test their digital literacy skills though exercises, projects, and assessments.

Unlike with simulations, Cirrus and TOSA pre- and post- assessments offer students a unique integrated learning solution, helping them develop skills mastery and preparing them for certification.

Cirrus and TOSA give learners the opportunity to gain essential digital literacy skills and take an internationally-recognized certification exam.

Learners will:

  1. Take a TOSA pre-assessment to evaluate digital skills competencies.
  2. Consume auto-graded, instructional content in Cirrus.
  3. Complete a TOSA post-assessment to test their comprehension.
  4. Take the TOSA certification exam.
