Requirements of the standard
The course on readiness for a standard have a link at the beginning of each chapter (from 4) of the standard, under the heading (requirements x to y) that refers to a page that lists the requirements of the standard and where you can read comments and use links to walk around the page.
Frequently asked questions (from the button in the footer or in the home page on the top). You'll find a lot of answers. If you are unable to find an answer, feel free to ask via "CONTACT".
Multiple choice test (questionnaire) help evaluate the level of your knowledge. At the end of each MCT after ticking off the result button you have:
- on the left of the question a tick in green when you have ticked off all correct answers
- on the left of the question a red cross for the incorrect answers (checking a wrong answer is counted as an error, not checking all correct answers is also counted as an error)
- in red: the incorrect answers and some explanations (between brackets)
- in green: correct answers and the explanation (between brackets) if it is the correct answer or one of the correct answers
- in blue: answers not ticked off
- an explicit “smiley”
- a comment on the level of acquired material and a recommendation to go forward or to go back to review and examine thoroughly again!
- a score on a 20 point scale
- for an answer you obtain:
- a note of 0 if you have ticked off at least one incorrect answer
- a note of 2 if you have ticked off one correct answer, but not all correct answers
- a note of 4 if you have ticked off all correct answers
Tip: to understand the logic of multiple choice tests you can see all the right and wrong answers and all the comments of a question by ticking off all the answers.
The time to answer a MCT is 5 minutes. After this time, you must try again. After 5 minutes you have to start the MCT again because the answers are reset to zero. For the MCT End, the time to answer is 20 minutes before the reset.
MCTs contain 5 questions, except the MCT End which contains 20 questions. When you start a MCT again to assimilate knowledge or get a better score the combination of questions is different each time, except for the MCT End.
The pass score for each MTC is 16 of 20.
When a MCT contains 5 questions scores of 0 to 14 are red/fail while scores of 16 to 20 are green/pass. For the MCT End, score of 15 and above is green/pass (below is red/fail). To access the MCT End, you must have passed all the MCTs (except the MCT at the beginning). When you have passed the MCT End with a score of at least 15 out of 20, you can download your certificate of mastery and attendance.
