OLD STYLE TEST INFORMATION PAGE
For the old style tests, as pictured in the first graphic below, you use
first name and
your last name for your "User Name" and
"User ID" on the opening page of the
test. First name (personal name) always goes on the left line and last name
(family name) always goes on the right
line. (See "Caution"
at the bottom of the graphic.) Students are required to use proper letter-case when inputting their names on all submissions to the college. Example: If your name is John Smith, then input John Smith, not john smith or JOHN SMITH. If you do not use proper letter-case when you input your name on a test, then the test will be Disallowed and discarded. If you do not fill in those two name lines on the tests
then we have no way of knowing who you are. And if you fill
them in incorrectly, then we have to hand-process your test
results instead of relying on our automated system to handle the
process for us. When we have to hand-process them, the time it
takes per student test is increased by a ratio of 5,000:1.
Updated testing software is being used as of 11/06/09. The following graphic will show you how to fill out the opening page on the new format tests. The color and background of the page may change but the information input lines will remain the same for all of the new tests.
Also, without your email entered on the Email line, or if it is entered incorrectly, the system cannot send a copy of your test to you at that address nor will we have an address to contact you about the test should we need to. We will endeavor to find you through a system search keyed on your name in order to find out who you are, but that increases the processing time by at least 5,000%. And there is no guarantee that we will find you that way. If we cannot, then your test will be discarded and you will have to retake it. The responsibility rests with the student for accurate submission of information on the opening page of the tests. The responsibility for any loss of material or disallowance because of inaccurate information submitted on the form will rest with the student. We will do the best we can to find you, but any student consistently failing to follow proper procedures will be placed on probation.
Those tests without an
email address are discarded as not usable because there is
no way to know who they are from, nor is there any way to contact
the student to ask them who they are.
Instructions For Testing
1. You must take the test at the end of each section before
proceeding to the next section of the textbook. You cannot
study the entire textbook and then take the tests all at
once. Unless otherwise indicated, the required procedure minimum is one week
to study one section and then take the test for that section.
You may submit that section test on the last day of the week of
study for that section of the textbook. The week of study
for the next section does not begin on the day you take a
section test. It begins on the next day after taking the
previous section test. That section test must be taken as many times as need be to
pass it. Each question answered wrong, whether you pass the test or
not, must be looked up in the textbook/workbook or your KJV Bible, whichever is appropriate, and the correct answer
found before proceeding to the next section for study or before proceeding to take the failed
test again to try to earn a passing score.
2. Once you have passed a test, please do not take it again. Only your first passing score will be added to your file. Any repeats taken after that will be discarded. We have to process and discard those additional tests by hand and this results in extra and unnecessary work for our staff.
3. Tests taken out of sequence: Because of our responsibility to ensure an acceptable quality of education for our students, which in this online format is attainable only by strict adherence to our study and testing guidelines, any tests taken out of sequence will be discarded and the score will not be recorded in your file. You will have to take that test again when you reach it in the proper order of lesson study and testing.
4. CAUTION: Sometimes the tests do not open when you first attempt to download them. This is an unavoidable quirk that sometimes happens when working with computers. If you get a blank page, please refresh the page and the tests will open. Either click the refresh icon or press F5 to refresh the page and that should allow the test to download and open properly.
5. Pay particular
attention to any instructions that you may find with the individual
questions on the tests. They are there to instruct you
concerning what is specifically required to be included in or not to
be included in your answer.
6. Quotes of scriptures in tests are always from the KJV and require
answers which are direct quotes from the KJV. Sometimes the
authors of the textbooks, for various reasons, use different
punctuation than what is in the KJV and at times they may misspell a word. If that happens and you
quote the scripture from the textbook instead of from the KJV, your
answer will be marked wrong.
7. Many answers on open book tests require the exact answer from the textbook, workbook, or the KJV Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question. It must be in the exact same format; i.e., it must have the same spelling, punctuation, etc. If it is not the exact answer then it will be marked incorrect.

Because there is always the possibility of an error in submission of the test to us for registration, student should make a copy of the Results page (pictured above) of every test that they take. This can be accomplished in several ways.

meet the minimum attendance requirements for each course in order for
the lesson tests to be valid. You will find the general requirements on each of the
Yearly class pages- First Year, Second Year, Third Year, Fourth
Year. You will also find specific attendance requirements
listed on each individual course main page. Those specific attendance requirements
on the course main pages supercede the general attendance
requirements and must be followed at all times even if they should
conflict with the general attendance requirements.
Study of all basic courses is required
of all students.
"If the foundations be destroyed (which has happened today because of teachers and pastors, many of whom have not been trained or who have been taught wrong), what can the righteous do." (Psalm 11:3)
Also see, "Where there is no vision, the people perish." (Prov 29:18) Which, by context, is speaking of a clear vision or revelation of God's Word as referred to in the following phrase in this proverb which speaks of "the Law" and those who keep it close, or guard it, or hedge it about (as in protection) or attend to it and observe it. (From the definition of the word "keepeth.")
These are some of the main reasons, but only a few of them, for our
insistence that all students take the basic courses. And the
wisdom of our set policy is born out in the answers that many
students give to the basic questions in the most basic of the
Those questions that I used as examples are but a few from the first test in the first most basic of
courses, Salvation. And many of those who do not know the
truth of God's Word in these most basic of areas are Pastors
and Sunday School teachers who, taken as a group, are preaching and
teaching these errors to untold thousands and also teaching
hundreds of their "preacher boys" these same errors.
And then those preacher boys being taught these errors will then go out and preach
and teach those same errors to
who knows how many multiplied thousands.
This makes it imperative that we teach them the Truth- and that from the foundation up.
I hope this explains our insistence that all students, no matter what their level of maturity, begin with the basics and follow instructions exactly. It is the only way we can maintain a clear conscience before God concerning the Bible education of those of His children whom He has led to us and entrusted to our care.
"Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful." (I Cor 4:2)
And this is the only way we here at the college can be faithful to this ministry to which the Lord has called us.
