Congratulations on taking the first step to become certified. We here at NCCT want to ensure that you are well prepared for your upcoming certification exam. Below you will find descriptions for the types of questions you will find on our certification exams as well as an example for each that you can work through.
Most questions on the exam will be Standard Multiple Choice questions, but you may also see a few of our Innovative Item Types. Look at each type of item below so that you will have a clear understanding of what to expect on the test!
In Standard Multiple Choice questions, candidates are asked to select the best possible answer from a list of options. Typically, examinees have four choices.
Hotspot Items will include a graphic with several clickable areas, or “hotspots,” as choices for your response. To answer our example Hotspot Item, place your mouse over the correct spot on the figure and click.
Drag and Drop Items will ask you to correctly place items from the left column into the right column in sequential order. To answer our example Drag and Drop Item place your mouse over the item you would like to place; then click and drag it to the correct position in the right column.
Multi-Select Items ask you to select all responses that are correct for a given question. The question will specify how many correct answers there are.
