Prior to registering for your first advanced education course, you are required to pass a diagnostic test that will assess your skill level in Excel and ensure that you will gain the most out of your learning experience.
Must Pass the Test to Enroll
You will not be able to register until your account indicates you have passed the test. Once you have passed the test, you will be able to register for any of the four general appraiser courses in the advanced curriculum. Courses that require a passing score on the test include
• Advanced Income Capitalization
• Advanced Concepts & Case Studies
• Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use
• Quantitative Analysis
You may take the test at any time. However, keep in mind that you must receive your "pass" grade confirmation letter at least 14 days before the classroom session begins. For specific deadline dates and access to the test, see the link that is included on each of the new course description pages.
Test results will be emailed to you within 7 business days from the day the test was submitted. Please allow 24 hours from the time you receive your "pass" grade confirmation to register for an advanced education course.
Your knowledge of Excel will be tested: basic formula creation, cell formatting, navigation, copy and paste, and file management. These skills are needed to succeed in the advanced curriculum for general appraisers.
There is no charge to take the test.
