  • Practice Test Results: Test results consist of a percentage correct for each Domain on the content outline and an overall percentage correct for the entire test. However, candidates will not be provided with the answers to questions and will not see which questions were answered incorrectly. Candidates will receive a detailed breakdown of their practice test performance along with a list of recommended study materials based on that performance. The practice tests are designed to help candidates determine in which areas they may need additional study before taking the certification exam(s).
  • No Refunds: NCCAOM is not responsible and will not issue refunds should the test be interrupted or terminated due to natural disasters (e.g., earthquake, flood, lightning strike), test-taker computer equipment failure (e.g., inadequate internet connection, power outage), or leaving the test before it is completed in its entirety. If candidates receive an error message while taking the practice tests, please make note of the error and NCCAOM will review it to determine how the error occurred. NCCAOM will not provide refunds to candidates who purchased the wrong practice test.
