A study by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement found inconsistent computer literacy rates across 12 countries, while more widely variable achievement levels also were evident.
Learners of higher socioeconomic status had higher computer literacy scores, on average.
The nations ranking highest in the study were Denmark and South Korea; U.S. student performance received a middling rating.
Educators' computer literacy also appears inconsistent, with 95% of teachers saying they were comfortable using the Internet to find resources, versus 57% who felt confident in using digital tools for online collaboration.
Girls generally outscored boys in computer literacy skills, according to the study.
