COBOL 400 Assessment

  • $10.00

COBOL is an acronym for Common Business Oriented Language. Developed in the late 1950s and early 1960s, COBOL is the second-oldest high-level programming language (FORTRAN is the oldest). It is particularly popular for business applications that run on large computers. Although disparaged by many programmers for being outdated, COBOL is still one of the most widely used programming languages in the world. This assessment is geared toward COBOL 400 and is appropriate to administer to COBOL programmers.

Assessments for COBOL II and COBOL for Year 2000 Programmers are also available.
