    The passing score for the posttest is 80% or higher. Your score will display on the screen immediately upon submitting the posttest.
  2. Q: Do I need to complete the posttest in one sitting?

  3. Q: Can I take the posttest more than one time?

    A: No, you only have one chance to successfully pass the posttest.  Because the same posttest will be administered at future programs, a key will not be provided, and CDR is unable to provide any feedback regarding your score.

    A: Your posttest score will appear and remain at the top of the screen after you submit the posttest.  You will not receive an email confirmation regarding your score.
