The completion of a local CRT Session is just one of the application requirements for many Selkirk College programs.
Local CRT Session
Selkirk College offers CRT sessions at the Castlegar, Nelson and Trail Campuses. Please use the online testing schedule form
to sign up for a session.
Distance CRT Session
If you have applied to Selkirk College, have a Selkirk College student number and live outside the local area, you can write the CRT by distance with an online proctor service called Examity.
You can do the assessment at your home, through Examity 24/7.
The fee is $25 USD.
You will need a voucher number to complete this option. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need high speed internet and a webcam to use Examity.
You will need access to the Internet for approximately 1.5 to 3 hours (the test is not timed). You cannot use a calculator. However, in some math sections, the program will provide you with an on-screen calculator (it will either pop up on the screen or you will see an icon in the lower left corner). You can use this feature on those questions.
Sample Test for Students
The CRT is an adaptive test. This means that the questions are chosen for you on the basis of your answers to previous questions. This technique selects just the right questions for your ability level. Because the test works this way, you must answer every question when it is first given. You can change your answer to a particular question before moving on to the next question, but you cannot leave a question out or come back to it later to change your answer.
The CRT is a multiple choice test. If you do not know the answer to a question, try to eliminate one or more of the choices. Then pick from the remaining choices.You cannot pass or fail the CRT, but it is very important that you do your very best on these tests so that we have an accurate measure of your ability. The CRT is not timed.
