Unfortunately, you are not allowed to use anything for this test. This includes: dictionaries, e-dictionaries, websites, language translation pages, etc.
Yes, there is a practice test available. It is meant to familiarize you with the software within myitlab; however, you cannot take this practice test until the Computer Literacy Test session. If you register before the session, you will be unable to access the practice test because you do not have a course code. This course code will only be administered during the testing session.
Unfortunately, if you are a Mac user, you will still have to take the Windows operating system based test. Going over the Microsoft Office tutorials as well as playing around on a PC a couple of days before your scheduled test will definitely help your chances of passing.
I registered for the test and bought my access code. Is there anything else I need to do prior to the test?
Once you have bought your access code and registered for a testing session, you do not have to do anything until you are in the session. You will register your access code and set up an account during the testing session, prior to taking the practice test.
Yes, you will need to purchase the access code prior to entering the test. If you come to the test without the access code, you will be asked to reschedule for another test date.
The Fox Computer Literacy Testing session is comprised of three parts: an introduction and set-up, the practice test, and the actual test. The first part takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete; the practice test has a maximum time of 10 minutes; the actual test has a maximum test of 50 minutes.
I have a Microsoft certificate, have taken a similar class at my previous college, etc. Am I exempt from the CLT?
If you feel that you have a validation on why you would be exempt from the Fox Computer Literacy Test( a passed class, Microsoft certification,etc.), you can contact your Fox Undergraduate advisor to see if you are eligible for exemption. Generally, anything done in high school is not valid and you are still responsible for taking the Computer Literacy Test.
