Assimilation

I may have received a slightly garbled message, but this is the situation as I understand it second-hand:
A new colleague visited the University's Staff Learning Centre today, and was given a test on general office working practices.  It was a multi-choice questionnaire to assess the nature of assistance the SLC can offer him, not specifically mentioning software packages.

He was then told that his approach to various hypothetical problems revealed an unfamiliarity with MS Word, and that he should take a training course.

In telling me, he assured me that the tasks weren't specifically related to word-processing, but were more about his intellectual approach, the implication being that the appraisal identified a non-Microsoft mindset, to be corrected.
