Step 7. On the Test & Evaluation History page, follow one of the directions below:

  • If you are starting a new test, select the link Click here to start a new test or evaluation (near the top left corner of the page), and then continue with Step 8.
  • If you are resuming an existing test which you have already started but it has not been scored or submitted yet, click on the Select link to its right.  This will take you to the Test Overview page (for multiple-choice tests) or the Test Questionnaire page (for the rating-scale tests), as explained in Step 9.
  • If you wish to review the results of a test which you have already taken and scored, click on the Select link to its right.  This will take you to the Test Score Summary page, as explained in Step 10.

Step 8. On the Select a New Test page, click on the Select link in front of any test you'd like to take.  (There are 14 sample tests that are currently active:

  • Style 1: 5 samples
  • Style 2: 1 sample
  • Style 3: 1 sample
  • Style 4: 2 samples
  • Style 5: 1 sample
  • Style 6: 3 samples
  • Style 7: 1 sample

Step 9. Depending on the test style you have selected, you will see the following:

(a) For multiple-choice tests (Style 1), you will see the Test Questionnaire Preview page.  On this page, you will have an opportunity to preview a summary of all the questions and the score points for each.  Remember that the clock for measuring your test time has not started yet.  Once you are ready to answer the questions, click on the link Start/Continue Answering Test Questions, which will start the clock and take you to the first page of the test questionnaire.  Proceed with the test and answer each question by making a selection of A/B/C/D/E as your answer.  On the last page of the test questionnaire, the scoring link will appear  At that point, click on Last Question - Click Here to Score This Test.  The system will score your test and will lead you to the Test Score Summary page, as explained in Step 10.

Please Note: As mentioned above, if you are taking a multiple-choice test, the only way you can have your answers scored is to go to the last page of the test questionnaire where the link labeled Last Question - Click Here to Score This Test becomes visible. Therefore, even if this is a practice/evaluation test for you, and you do not intend to answer each and every question, at least you should click on the [>>] button in order to jump to the last page of the questionnaire and enable the scoring process.

(b) For rating-scale tests (Styles 2 through 6) or multiple-choice test Style 7, you will see the Test Questionnaire page.  On this page, all questions are presented at once.  Just select your rating/answer to each question by clicking on one of the rating numbers in front of it (and enter optional comments where applicable).  Once you have completed your rating/survey answers, click on the [Submit] button to have the system record your answers and then forward you to the Summary page, as explained in Step 10.

Step 10. Review the Summary page, and then proceed as follows:

(a) Click on the link Click Here to Continue, which will take you back to Test History page, as explained in Step 7, or

(b) Click on the link Click Here for Details, which will show your answers/ratings/comments for each question.

Step 11. Once you are back at the Test History page, you can either work on another test (by following steps 7 through 10 again), or go back to the Home page, or exit the system.
