Taking an online practice test

You may purchase a practice test on its own or during test registration. To purchase a practice test, visit the "Prepare" page on this website, and select "Practice Tests." Choose the test field from the dropdown menu. Click "Buy Now" next to the test you'd like to purchase. You will be prompted to create an account on this website, which you will also use to register for the test and access your results.

After purchasing, you can log in to your account on this website at your convenience and take your practice test.

You will have 120 days to access your practice test, beginning on the date of activation.

Each practice test includes field-specific directions similar to those that will be presented in the operational testing environment. Practice test questions may include graphics, audio materials, and writing assignments, as appropriate. There is currently only one version of each practice test.

While you are testing, you may pause the test and return to it later if you wish; you do not have to finish in a single session.

Your practice test can be submitted for scoring only once, but it will be available for your review until the end of your subscription period (120 days). After you submit your practice test for scoring, you will receive immediate results showing your objective-level performance on multiple-choice questions. You may also review each item along with the correct response and an explanation of why the response is correct.

For the PAPA—Writing subtest, you will be provided with sample responses and analyses of each response. You can compare your response to the sample responses to gauge your performance.
