To advance in the Cadet Program and become eligible for promotions, cadets complete online achievement tests, drill and ceremonies performance tests, and written milestone award exams.
Drill & Ceremonies Performance Tests
Cadets who are studying the Learn to Lead tests will complete drill and ceremonies performance tests during Achievements 1 through 8 using CAP Test 78-2. This test is available in PDF only.
Online Achievement Tests
Test Site: Log-in to eServices and click "Cadet Online Tests."
Maj Dan Routier created The Guide to Starting eServices to help new cadets navigate eServices.
(1) All Aerospace Dimensions tests
(2) All Aerospace Journey of Flight tests (under review; will be available shortly)
(3) Learn to Lead tests
Please note that tests for the "old" leadership textbook, Leadership for the 21st Century, are available in hard copy only.
Question Bank: 25 questions per test, selected at random from a question bank
Time Limit: 30 minutes
Test Location: Cadets may test at a time and place of their choosing (e.g.: 2 am Saturday night at home in pajamas)
Format: Multiple-choice, open book. Passing score is raised to 80%.
Scoring: Scores are automatically fed into the Cadet Promotions Application in eServices. In case of failure, the cadet is locked out for 7 days. In case of failing the same test twice, the cadet is locked out until meeting with a senior member. Note: Scores do not feed into the Cadet Promotions Application and squadron leaders will not receive notification of test results unless cadets click "Finish."
Special Accommodations: Squadrons may support cadets who lack Internet access or have special educational needs by administering the tests via hard copy at the unit. Seniors may obtain a hard copy via eServices; click "Cadet Online Testing," then "Admin," then the link to hard copy tests. These paper achievement tests will also be administered open-book, time limit 30 minutes, with 80% passing score.
Performance Tests: Of course, drill and ceremonies will still be tested the “old fashioned way.”
Milestone Award Exams: As a safety valve protecting the integrity of cadet awards, milestone award exams will remain closed-book and controlled by the squadron.
Test Integrity: An honor statement will buttress the integrity of the testing program in an open-book environment. Before beginning an online test, cadets must agree to the following:
I certify that I am Cadet (Name). I will complete the following Cadet Achievement Test on my own, without help from another person. My only resource for this open-book test will be my cadet textbooks and class notes. [By clicking below,] I reaffirm my commitment to our Core Value of Integrity.
