Self-assessment test

Below is a short questionnaire that will enable you to assess how mature your app is and find out if it is ready to begin a certification process.

To make your task easier, we have divided the questionnaire into 5 blocks with a total of 31 questions.

Remember to complete all the questions and answer accurately.

When you finish the self-assessment you will receive guidance and know how prepared your app is to undergo app certification by the TIC Salut Social Foundation.
