This publication reviews the definitions of digital and information and communications technology (ICT) literacy that have been adopted in cross-national studies. It also investigates the approaches to the assessment of digital and ICT literacy that have been employed in previous studies and articulates the criteria that should guide the development of a global measure of digital and ICT literacy skills. Furthermore, the paper includes an appraisal of prospects for such a development.
