Report 35-9, Academic Report (multipage; list; rough draft)
40 minutes (+2)
This document has been designated as a
practice test because it is very similar to the actual document processing
test you will take when you come on campus next week. Use Start
Work to begin from a blank Word screen, and type the practice test. Your
goal is to have zero Keystroking Errors and correct formatting
when you click Submit Work and to complete the job within the
time limit. When you come on campus for your actual test, you will be
required to do the same.
YOU MAY NOT EDIT A PRACTICE TEST! If you exit and find you
had any errors, use Start Work (not Edit Work)
to retype the document from a blank screen. You may restart a practice test
as many times as you want to and you should. This is how you prepare
yourself for the actual test in which you are allowed only one attempt.
Start Work to create Report 35-9; correct all typos and formatting errors.
- Exit and use Browse and Submit Work.
If you have any
Start Work to begin from a blank Word screen, and try again.
- If you have zero errors, check Time Spent
in the Portfolio to be sure you are within the time limit. Time Spent begins when you
click Start Work and ends when the file name appears in the
Browse box after clicking Browse. Therefore, work efficiently
as you open, close, save, and browse to your finished job.
I will allow 2 extra minutes for these activities;
so if your Time Spent is 42 minutes, for example, you're still within an
acceptable time limit.
Note: When you come in for
testing next week, you will have only one Start Work attempt on
the test. Your goal is to have zero Keystroking Errors and
correct formatting when you click Submit Work to score the
document within the time limit.
Because printouts include instructor comments, consider printing to use the
job details as a study guide, particularly for any practice tests. From
My GDP, Portfolio, expand the desired annotated job; click
Details; scroll to the bottom of the job window, and click Print.

- Your error limit will now be reduced from 5 to 4, which means you are not penalized for
making any errors up to 4. Try to type at a steady, comfortable rate as
you progress through the timed writing and reduce your errors from 5 to
- After 4 errors, you may correct errors or just try to
slow down for control. If correcting errors after you have reached your
maximum limit helps you relax, please do so. If correcting errors
distracts you or slows you down too much, try to slow down slightly for
