"Finish Test" button, you will receive one warning that you have unanswered questions. You may then answer those questions and then click the "Finish Test" button again to get your final score.
3. The passing score for all tests is 70 percent. For instance, on a test with 50 questions you could miss up to 15 questions and still receive passing score. However, if you miss 16 or more questions you will receive a failing score and then must re-schedule to take the test over again.
Once you complete the test, the proctor (test administrator) will provide you with a printed test result page. This page will inform you of your score (70% or greater to pass) and a summary of test “Content Areas”, the total of questions in that Content Area and the number of correct answers for the Content Area. For example: the exam had 10 pest identification questions and you answered 8 correctly. This can be useful information if you did not pass the test.
If you passed the test, the proctor will provide you with a “Pesticide Applicator License Application” to complete and send to CDA for processing. The CDA will review your application / quailifications to determine if you are elligable to to obtain a pesticide applicator license, if you meet the requirements CDA will then issue / mail you license to you. If you do not meet the licensing requirements CDA will send notification to you.
