Not quite what you are looking for, but this link shows staff basic
competencies which are also 8th grade exit skills, and some practice
tests. May be of use to you.

I'm wondering if anyone on the list is aware of any type of software
that measures and assesses student computer skills. We've been
quite a bit of time this year compiling a list of the particular
computer skills that kids should master at particular grade levels.
There is talk that I should sit down with individual students and go
over a checklist of skills with each student (talk about taking the
out of computing!) If there was a piece of software that would lead
students through particular computer tasks and then offer an
of that student's abilities, there might be a great savings in time
I'm also wondering about how people feel about the issue of student
assessment with regard to computer skills. I get the feeling that
nitpicking when we wonder whether a first grade student is capable of
completing a left-mouse click, or a third grader is able to
a body of text and transform it in some fashion. Has anyone else
over these things?
Thanks for any input.
