Test Structure, Method & Preparation
Welcome to the ChangeWise LCS Level 1a test web page for WAVE practitioners. Information on the test method and structure is shown below, while general advice can be seen via the General Advice & Technical tab. When you are ready to start the test, click on the Taking the Test tab.
- The test contains 25 questions, which are mainly multiple choice (eg select one of four options).
- All questions attract the same mark.
- There is partial marking on some questions – that is, you will get some marks if you get some of the question right.
- The test window is open for two weeks, starting on Monday 14th May (9.00 am) and closing on Sunday 27th May (11.55 pm)
- You are allowed two attempts at the test during the window.
- The pass mark is 66%; you will receive a system message with your result as soon as you have finished and submitted the test. Marks are rounded up (manually) to the next whole number if they include a fraction.
- You have 20 minutes to complete the test (a countdown timer will be shown).
- Your answers are saved as you submit each one, not at the end of the test. This means you will not lose any work.
- The test cannot be paused; you must finish it in one sitting.
- The test is ‘open book’ – that is, you can refer to course material, reference books, web pages, etc.
- There is random question order (that is, questions are in a different order for different test takers and for a repeat); one question per page is shown.
- All questions must be answered and you must provide an answer for a question before you can proceed to the next question; you can change answers by back-tracking at any stage (within the time limit).
- Avoid using the browser back button as this will not work. Use the Previous button which will be under your Questions.
- Access to test by clicking the taking the test tab, then click the appropriate link for your group. You will need your email and the password (emailed to you) to start the test.
Technical Guidance, Test Conditions
- If you are using a laptop unplugged from a power supply, make sure there is sufficient battery power to take the test.
- Ideally, find a quiet area without distractions for taking the test.
- If your internet connection is through a wireless connection, make sure you have a good quality signal. Clearly, fast internet connection speeds will lead to a better test experience in terms of speed of response etc.
- If your test page freezes, you can always click refresh on your web browser and the test will
again load on the same question/s you were on. Note: If you have written any long answers on the frozen page, make a copy of these answer/s first so you do not lose them.
- If your computer or web browser has a problem or they are closed, using the same web
browser, re-open your web browser go to the start link for the test and you will be taken back
to the last question you were on, where you will be able to resume your test.
- While the test is open book, take care not to spend too much time on a question, as the test will end and be submitted after the allotted time and you need to ensure you complete as many questions as possible.
- If you fail the test, you can contact the LCS for feedback before you attempt it for a second time.
If you experience technical problems when taking the test, email firstname.lastname@example.org
