Tests Offered

Computer-Based Tests

Each computer test takes the candidate through a short tutorial to instruct the examinee on use of the computer and how to answer test questions. The test administrator is available at all times for technical assistance. Many candidates find the individual, non-distracted environment and, in most cases, immediate score report feedback very attractive features of computer based testing.

Computer Based Tests are given year-round on the computer with the exception of University holidays and on-campus conflicts. Special testing accommodations for persons with disabilities must be made directly with the testing company.
