Interactive Practice Tests
Use the interactive practice tests to prepare for the Program Admission assessment. Each full-length practice test allows you to practice answering one set of test questions to simulate what you will experience on the actual day of the test. After you complete the practice test, you can see if you answered the selected-response questions correctly or incorrectly and get explanations for the correct answers. Feedback is not provided for the constructed-response questions.
A practice test for each subtest in the Program Admission assessment is available for purchase through the ETS Store at $18 per subscription. Note: There are two versions of the interactive practice test available for each test title. Within each version is one set of test questions that you can answer to simulate what you will experience on the actual day of the test. The same questions are presented in the same order within each version of the practice test. Retaking or repurchasing the same version more than once does not give you different practice questions or change the order in which the questions are delivered.
