GMetrix is the practice assessment tool to get you “exam ready.” The tests offered in GMetrix simulate the official certification exams. GMetrix offers both timed tested (50 minutes) or untimed tests for practice. Most tests can be completed online, except live-application exams. Those require you to download the GMetrix software, which you can do on the Getting Started page.
For American students, your GMetrix application is embedded in your Jasperactive software. Sorry Canadians! You need to download the GMetrix software separately.
Compass is the latest certification software created by Certiport, A Pearson Vue Business. This is the program you will be using to take your official certification exam. Your school or education facility will have this program in their testing labs which is where you will take your exam.
Your student profiles have been created for you.
The next step is to download the two software programs needed in your Certification Program: Jasperactive and GMetrix! Please return to the Getting Started page.
