Just how net savvy are the Y-Generation students entering university? This study measures the perceptions of the entry level Y-Generation university students about their ability to search the Internet for familiar everyday tasks and for non-familiar academic tasks. Their ability to perform some tasks is then tested and compared with their perceptions. We found the students have confidence in their ability to search the Internet, but their ability does not match their confidence for all types of tasks.
