STEP-BY-STEP ONLINE EXAM INSTRUCTIONS
- Click the “TAKE THE TEST” button.
- Log in using your MathCON profile username and password.
- You will arrive at the MathCON Test where you will find 45 multiple choice test questions.
- Proceed with answering the questions by selecting the best answer; the entire test is multiple choices.
- In case the online test freezes while a student is taking the test, the student will need to close the browser window and re-open it. When the student closes the browser window, he/she will not lose any answers, because the system records the answer of each question when the student clicks Next. When the student re-opens the test, the questions that he/she already answered will be marked blue, but the system will randomize the questions every time you open the test, so the questions’ locations will be different each time you open the test.
