Practice Test (Open to all cadets)

THE PRACTICE TEST IS OPEN TO ALL CADETS. Each cadet should Sign In using the username and password they created and may take the Practice Test anytime during the testing window. The Practice Test is taken individually, not as a team. It consists of 25 questions (from a bank of 50, so cadets may take the test multiple times), similar to those in Levels I and II. It is a great way to evaluate your entire unit’s understanding of the JROTC curriculum and general subjects. The cadet’s scores in the Practice Test will be available on their individual dashboard.
