Trial the Assessment
To ensure that it works, we advise that you trial the assessment all the way through as a fictitious student named Test Test. You can choose any gender and date of birth. When using the Non-Web version, check that the trial response files are saved successfully on your machine/network and upload them to CEM for processing. Check that we have processed and/or received your assessment data successfully by looking at your STATUS REPORTS. Using Test as forename and surname will ensure the trial student is excluded from your school’s feedback. Delete any other trial student you have created using the CANDIDATE EDITOR.
The example questions for the Computer Adaptive Baseline Test (CABT) require a correct answer but, once you have finished this section, you can pick any response and click on the NEXT button. At the end of the assessment, or if it times out, you will be told on screen that your results are being saved, and then that they have been saved. You will then need to select OK to close the browser.
If you have any doubts about your internet bandwidth, please trial the online version of the assessment with a number of simultaneous assessments. Should you find that your internet bandwidth is insufficient, you should use the NON-WEB version of the assessment.
