    You may only take a test twice within a three-month period.

  3. Do I have to take tests?
    In most cases, you don't need to take a test. However, we highly recommend taking skill tests to verify your skills to help earn buyers’ trust.
    Note: In some categories, you are required to take a test to publish a Gig.

  4. Can everyone see my score?
    As a seller, you have the option to show or hide your score. If you choose to show your skill test results, users will see various details—your score, your ranking by percentage, your time spent on topics, your results by topic, and more.

    Note: Optional skill tests will not appear on your seller profile.

  5. What browser should I use to take the test?
    This test is best viewed using Internet Explorer version 11.0 or higher, Mozilla Firefox 45.0 or higher, or Google Chrome 48 or higher.

    How the grading system works:

    a. To pass the skill test, you are required to answer a minimum of 60%-80% of the questions correctly.
    b. Your percentile is defined dynamically, based on other test-takers.
    c. The time it takes you to complete the test is tracked.

  7. What will buyers see?
