Self Assessment Exams

Online self-assessment exams are available to students preparing for the BOC exam or ATs seeking an assessment of their continuing education (CE) needs. Content experts who develop the BOC exam created the questions within the self-assessment exams. These exams will assist in determining potential areas of strength and weakness in athletic training for future study or CE needs.

The BOC offers self-assessment exams in Study and Exam modes. Each self-assessment exam includes 75 questions that are representative of the question types on the BOC exam, including multiple-choice, multi-select, drag-and-drop, hot spot and focused testlets.

Although the content areas of the self-assessment exams are comparable to those of the actual BOC exam, the questions included in the self-assessment exams will never appear on a future exam.

The self-assessment exams are available via the internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will have 365 days from the purchase date to complete a self-assessment exam once you have paid for an exam.

When you are ready to take a self-assessment exam, simply create a User Account, purchase the exam and begin testing.

Study Mode

In Study mode, candidates are provided with the correct answer and a reference by clicking on the "View Solution" link located on the bottom left-hand side of the screen for each multiple-choice question. Therefore, no final score is given and no report is available in Study Mode. This is due to the answer and reference being provided within each individual question.

Candidates have 24 hours of cumulative time, over a 365 day period from the date of purchase, to complete the self-assessment exam.

Candidates cannot re-enter the self-assessment exam once it has been submitted for scoring.

NOTE: The questions within each version in Study mode are identical to the questions within the same version in Exam mode.

Exam Mode

In Exam mode, you will receive your score and brief diagnostic information detailing your areas of strength and weakness at the domain level immediately after you take a self-assessment exam. For best results, you are advised to concentrate your study efforts or CE on the content areas where you demonstrated weakness rather than to focus on a specific question that gave you trouble.
