The Word Skills Test is found at the end of our Industry Fundamentals™ portion of the course. We recommend anyone brand new to the court reporting and scoping world enroll in Industry Fundamentals™ before enrolling in our full course. It’s $197, requires no commitment to a payment plan, and you can apply the full price of it toward the cost of the full course or your first month’s payment in a installment plan.
If you score below an 80% on the Word Skills Test (100 questions), you have a few options. You can choose to pursue something other than scoping, or you can study up and retake the test at a later date. A low score does not necessarily mean you would never succeed as a scopist, but you will need to improve your skills in order to succeed.
You can purchase retakes of the Word Skills Test for a small fee of $20 each. Just contact us.
