    Hi Valentina,

    The Demonstration Exam is a way for you and other candidates to try out the new ARE 5.0 interface before you get to the test center.  It's just like what you'll see in the test center - including navigation through the exam, the new item types and case studies, and tools like the references, highlight and strikethrough.  But no, it's not graded.  The answers to all the non-case study items are in the ARE 5.0 Handbook; the answers to the case study items are posted here: https://are5community.ncarb.org/hc/en-us/community/posts/220681307/comments/222231728

    I just did a few questions on what I think is the demonstration exam, but now to review it is asking me to login. I am trying to login with my ncard email and password but it is saying invalid?

     

    Here is where the practice exam I took is : https://portal.examstudio.com/PLExam.aspx

    what is going on?

    Hey Alix,

    After completing the ARE 5.0 Demonstration Exam, you can just close the browser or tab.  There is no additional log-in that needs to be done.  If you want to go through the exam again, just relaunch through your NCARB Record.

    Alix,

    Yes...the last five questions in the Demo Exam are case study items.  It will give you a chance to practice using the references and navigating the tabs/interface.  In your actual exam, case study items will be any of the five item types (MC, CATA, QFIB, Hot Spot, or Drag-and-Place) but will be about the case study scenario and references.  They are not testing any content other than what is outlined in the division's objectives.  So if you can navigate the interface and understand the division's content areas, you are ready for the case studies!
