COBOL II Assessment
COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language) is one of the oldest high-level programming languages. It has become the programming language of choice for most business applications.
Major updates to the COBOL operating standard occurred in 1968, 1974, and 1985. COBOL II is the name given to IBM's release of the COBOL '85 standard. COBOL language structure was not changed with the '85 standard however, some obsolete language elements were removed, and additional items were added.
The COBOL II assessment measures programming skills in the 1985 standard version of COBOL. It is appropriate to be given to people who will be programming and maintaining COBOL systems created or modified since 1985. It is not appropriate to be used to evaluate skills in the earlier versions of COBOL.
Assessments for COBOL and COBOL 400 are also available.
