Diagnostic tests are available to anyone registered with us to let you check your competence in any of the ECDL modules to make sure you are ready for an invigilated test. The real tests cost money and if you fail there will be a resit fee so have a go at a diagnostic before taking a real test.
If you score 80% or higher in a diagnostic test then you should be okay in an invigilated test, if you score lower then you may wish to review your understanding of the topics covered by that module.
Rather than needing you to attend one of our advertised testing session to take diagnostic tests we have allocated a diagnostic test for each module to everyone so that you can check when you are ready.
To take a diagnostic test:
Login with the ECDL ID and password supplied to you at http://central.thirdforce.com.
You will be prompted for a security code which changes on a daily basis.
Enter the relevant daily code to start the assessment. Refer to this blog entry for the daily codes.
If you think you are ready to take an ECDL unit test it is worth checking your knowledge first by taking a diagnostic test first.
Because of the requirements of these interactive tests we recommend that you use one of the open-access workstations on campus for diagnostic tests as you need to install additional Authorware components for the testing software to run correctly.[Read More]
