The university I'm going to next fall has a requirement for "computer literacy competency" to graduate, either a test or a stupid class, which is also a prerequisite to Computer Science classes. The so-called "computer literacy competency exam" consisted of some general knowledge (including arranging floppy disks, USB drives, CDs, and hard drives by general storage capacity) and knowledge specifically on how to use a few miscellaneous features in a small collection of proprietary programs: Microsoft Office, Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, and Notepad. The worst part of it was Microsoft Office since it has a bizarre layout compared to e.g. LibreOffice, combined with the fact that any wrong click, even going into the wrong menu, counted as "incorrect", with 3 attempts permitted before the answer was marked as "wrong".
Even worse, when I inquired the testing office about a "Computer Science placement exam" I had read about but didn't see on the testing site, the person who answered told me that it is the exact same exam as the "computer literacy competency exam".
What's funny to me is the high school I went to is actually pretty good with this. It has the stupid class that teaches you about Microsoft Office, but it's actually appropriately titled as "MS user", rather than being called "computer literacy" or "general computing" or some bullshit like that. It also has a proper programming class, though it's only a semester of Visual Basic due to lack of interest from students in anything more advanced (the last semester they had C++, there were three students there).
