Unit 8 Practice Test
Lesson 39, Table 39-13, Ruled Table
12 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.

  • Use Start Work to create Table 39-13; correct all typos and formatting errors.
  • Exit and use Browse and Submit Work. If you have any errors, use 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 14 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. 

MC900441397[1]Tip: 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.
  
Turn in your remaining skillbuilding lessons once a week (no later than Saturday evening each week) rather than one at a time.
From this point on, you will be focusing your efforts entirely on skillbuilding. Below are the goals for speed on a 3-minute timing with 3 errors or fewer:
  • A = 40+ wpm

  • B = 35-39

  • C = 30-34

  • D = 25-29

  • F = 24 or below
