The online test, like the submission of learning challenges, is administered through the Moodle website associated with this course. The OER Foundation has donated use of the OERu’s Moodle site for the purpose of this course.

Can I prepare for the test?

Yes! At the end of most of the learning challenges, you will find several True-False and Multiple Choice questions, together with feedback on correct and incorrect answers. These are the same questions that are used in the knowledge test to certify your participation. You can review the knowledge test questions for each learning challenge by visiting the following links:

Honour pledge for test takers

We expect learners taking the knowledge participation test to uphold the highest standards of academic integrity.

All questions are published on the course site, which you can review and practise before taking the test. If you are unsuccessful in the test attempt, you will be able to re-sit the test in accordance with the number of permissible attempts published on this page. However, while taking the test, you should not receive help. (This does not prohibit help required by learners with a disability, such as using a human or automated reader.)

All test takers will be required to affirm the following statement before attempting the test:

“I affirm that I have not given or received any unauthorised help while taking the test, and that this work is my own.”

In the event that the OER Foundation identifies breaches of this honour code, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to withdraw any badges or certificates that have been issued to you and/or to ban your user account on all websites maintained by the OER Foundation.

Can I trial the technology before I take the knowledge test?

Yes! If you have not taken an online test before, or have not used the Moodle platform, we have created a practice test for you to familiarise yourself with the online test environment. Try it!
