The main categories of assessment include two components of 'literacy ability elements' and 'literacy content elements.' The main results are as follows. In terms of city size, Large City had the highest overall scores of ICT literacy test for both elementary and middle school students among the three groups(Large City, Middle/Small City, and Eup(Middle Town)/Myeon(Small Town)). Also, in terms of gender, female students had relatively higher overall scores of ICT literacy test than male students for both elementary and middle school levels.
