The practice test includes a few short activities (also called tasks) to introduce you to our recorder. It’s also an opportunity to show off your ability to share your thoughts and ideas.
NOTE: Because you only receive payments in return for the feedback you provide to customers, you won't receive any compensation for the practice test you submit as part of your application.

During the test
You’ll complete a set of tasks that require you to explore our Contributor Support Center. You should approach the test as if you had visited the Support Center on your own and you'd like to find new information or answers to questions you have about UserTesting.
Remember to think out loud, speak loudly and clearly, and complete each task to the best of your ability.

After the test

You can also view the status of your practice test from the applicant checklist. When your test is still under review, an In review badge will display on the Take a practice test tile.
- When the Quality Team has reviewed and approved your practice test, this step will be marked as Done on your checklist.
If you don't pass the practice test the first time, you'll have one more chance to try again.
