CBT Testing Information

Paper and Pencils No Longer Allowed at Workstations During CBT Testing

Exam takers are no longer allowed to bring paper or pencils to a workstation in the testing room. As a replacement for the paper and pencils, candidates are provided with two double sided, laminated, colored sheets called "noteboards", as well as a fine point marker for making notations.

Candidates are instructed to write their examination Launch Code (from their NTS) on the noteboards, and then return the noteboards to the test center staff when the examination is complete. If a candidate needs additional writing space, the test center staff will provide the candidate an additional noteboard, after the original noteboard has been turned in.
