Typing and Data Entry Tests
- Do not watch the clock. Continue working until the test actually tells you to stop regardless of what the clock reads. Most timed tests allow you to finish what you are typing (i.e. the word or the sentence) when the time runs out.
- You must continue typing through the end of the timer (after the timer hits 0) in order to obtain the most accurate scores, and in order for the test to complete properly. If the test appears to 'hang' after the timer displays 0, please finish the word you are typing and hit the spacebar. This should complete the test.
Other timed tests
- You may or may not see the timer actually moving while a question is displayed. At a minimum, you should see the timer update as you move from question to question. Proceed through the test as normal even if the timer appears to not be updating correctly.
- Some timed tests, particularly behavioral and cognitive tests, by design offer more questions than you might complete. The object is to complete as many as possible within a stated time limit. Please be sure to read the tutorial carefully, where this is explained.
