Tasks 1-6 took a total of around 3-4 hours. The largest amount of time spent on this task was during Step 4 (Relation Databases): (probably over 70% of my time on these tasks was spent on Access). I had 2 main difficulties with Access: 1. I was unfamiliar with the program, and therefore needed extra time to familiarize myself with it and 2. I found the sections regarding the creation of a Relationship or Query to be difficult and confusing.
I think that the Information Technology Literacy Test would be improved with a more detailed explanation on how to do task number 4. I found that because I did not have a strong knowledge of Access, assignment number 4 was very difficult. I would have found the assignment much easier and less time consuming had the explanation in the test been: 1. directly about the assignment given (and not about transcripts) and 2. more step-by-step - a big reason why I felt it took so long was because some of the steps were missing, or touched on only briefly in the explanation. However, I did find the other tasks and their explanations to be very clear, and good resources for the future.
