CDC Quizzes & Trivia

The Control Data Corporation [CDC] was one of the top nine biggest United States computer companies in the 1960s. During that time, they created a line of computers that were the fastest computers then. These were the first to be called supercomputers. However, their success was short-lived.  They couldn’t sustain their success and they started evolving into a service based company. They were convinced that the computer-based education was going to become a huge market in the future. They turned to providing higher education to segments of society that could never afford to go to university.
So professional licensure and educational testing became important business segments for them. A CDC professional qualification was a pioneering and empowering certification. And it still is. PLATO [Programmed Logic for Automatic Teaching Operations] was one of the first computer aided instruction systems and it set them miles ahead of the competition. If you know your history about computers and the role played by the CDC, take these quizzes and prove your hard drive has good processing power.
