CBT Overview

CBT概述

WHAT IS CBT?

CBT stands for Computer-Based-Testing. It is a method of exam delivery by use of a computer at a proctored vendor site.

什么是CBT

CBT代表基于计算机的测试。这是一种通过计算机在受保护的供应商网站上进行考试的方法。

 

WHAT COMPUTER SKILLS DO I NEED TO TAKE EXAMS VIA COMPUTER?

You should be familiar with the use of a mouse and keyboard. A 15-minute tutorial will be available to you prior to taking a test. You can practice on the computer-based demo available here.(https://www.prometric.com/_layouts/results/index.html)

我需要什么计算机技能才能参加计算机参加考试?

你应该熟悉鼠标和键盘的使用。在参加考试之前,您将获得15分钟的指导。您可以在这里(https://www.prometric.com/_layouts/results/index.html)提供的基于计算机的演示上进行练习。

 

HOW ARE TEST QUESTIONS FORMATTED ON CBT EXAMS?

CBT exam questions are standard multiple-choice, similar in appearance to paper-and-pencil exam questions. With CBT, typically one question will appear on the screen at a time.

CBT考试的试题格式如何?

CBT考试题是标准的多项选择题,在外观上类似于纸笔考试题。对于CBT,通常一次在屏幕上显示一道试题。

 

DOES IT TAKE MORE TIME TO COMPLETE A COMPUTERBASED EXAM COMPARED TO A PAPER-AND-PENCIL EXAM?

All certification exams, whether they are computer-based or paper-and-pencil, are two (2) hours in duration. If you are taking an exam with multiple parts (for example, CWI, Parts A and C), each part is two (2) hours in duration. Most exam-takers find that it takes less time to complete an exam, because the process of answering questions is more efficient. However, expect to be at the test center for approximately three hours (per part) as additional time is needed for check-in/check-out, and to review the pre-exam tutorial.

与纸笔考试相比,完成基于计算机的考试需要更多的时间吗?

所有的认证考试,无论是计算机考试还是纸笔考试,持续时间都是2个小时。如果您参加的考试有多个部分(例如,CWI、A部分和C部分),则每个部分的持续时间为2个小时。大多数应试者发现完成一次考试花费的时间更少,因为回答问题的过程更有效率。但是,由于签到/退房需要额外的时间,并且需要复习考试前教程,因此预计将在考试中心停留大约三个小时(每个部分)。

 

CAN I TAKE THE COMPUTER-BASED EXAM ON MY COMPUTER AT HOME OR AT WORK?

No. Prometric’s computer-based exams are offered only in secure, proctored testing centers, ensuring a professional, consistent testing environment and reducing the opportunity to cheat by protecting the security and integrity of the exam questions.

我可以在家里或工作时用我的电脑参加计算机考试吗?

不可以。Prometric的基于计算机的考试只在安全的、经过管理的测试中心提供,确保专业、一致的测试环境,并通过保护考试问题的安全性和完整性来减少作弊的机会。

 

MY EYES GET FATIGUED WHEN I LOOK A COMPUTER MONITOR FOR TOO MANY HOURS. CAN I BRING BLUE-BLOCKING GLASSES TO DIMINISH EYESTRAIN DURING THE EXAM?

It is permitted to wear glasses to the Prometric testing facility, but eyewear will be examined by test center staff for security reasons prior to testing. More information can be found here: www.prometric.com/en-us/for-test-takers/pages/Test-Center-Security.aspx.

当我看了太久的电脑显示器时,我的眼睛会感到疲劳。我能带上蓝框眼镜来减轻考试时的眼睛疲劳吗?

Prometric检测机构允许佩戴眼镜,但在检测前,出于安全原因,检测中心工作人员将对考生佩戴的眼镜进行检查。更多信息可参考:

www.prometric.com/en-us/for-test-takers/pages/Test-Center-Security.aspx.

 

DURING THE COMPUTER TEST, CAN I SKIP QUESTIONS AND GO BACK?

Yes. You can even mark questions that you’ve skipped so that they’re easy to return to. This is a good testing strategy: to skip a question that’s going to eat up too much time and instead move on to other questions you’re more confident with; then you can come back when you have time left over and review the questions you had skipped. You can practice on the computer-based demo available to you at our website: www.prometric.com/_layouts/results/index.html.

在计算机测试期间,我可以先跳过某个试题然后再返回作答吗?

可以。你甚至可以标记你跳过的试题,便于您返回作答。这是一个很好的考试策略:跳过一个会占用太多时间的试题,转而去处理其他你更自信的试题;然后你可以在剩下的时间回来回顾你跳过的试题。您可以在我们的网站www.prometric.com//u layouts/results/index.html上进行基于计算机的演示练习。

 

I LIKE TO MAKE NOTES WHEN I’M TESTING, ESPECIALLY WITH QUESTIONS INVOLVING CALCULATIONS; HOW DO I DO THIS ON A COMPUTER TEST?

The exam proctor at the Prometric testing center will provide you with a pencil and scratch paper for the exam. When you finish the exam, you will need to turn in the scratch paper to the proctor who will then shred the paper.  (This is for exam security purposes.)

我喜欢在考试时做笔记,尤其是涉及计算的问题;我如何在计算机考试中做到这一点?

Prometric考试中心的考试主管将为您提供考试用铅笔和草稿纸。当你完成考试后,你需要把草稿纸交给监考人员,监考人员会把草稿纸撕碎销毁。(这是为了考试安全。)

 

CAN I USE SCRATCH PAPER DURING MY EXAM?

Yes. Scratch paper is available at the computer testing center for taking notes during the exam. Candidates will need to submit their scratch paper at the end of the exam and the scratch paper will be shredded.

我可以在考试时用草稿纸吗?

对。在计算机测试中心有草稿纸,可以在考试期间做笔记。考生需要在考试结束时提交草稿纸,草稿纸将被撕碎。

 

I ALREADY KNOW I WON’T SCORE AS WELL ON A COMPUTER TEST AS A PENCIL-AND-PAPER TEST. THAT’S NOT FAIR.

The testing experience may be different but your scores are unlikely to be. The scientists who design and study the operation of certification exams have demonstrated over many decades that in aggregate, there are no meaningful differences in scores between paper-based and computer-based exams.

我已经知道我不会像纸笔考试那样在电脑考试中取得好成绩。这不公平。

测试经验可能不同,但你的分数不太可能。设计和研究认证考试操作的科学家们几十年来已经证明,总的来说,纸质考试和计算机考试在分数上没有任何有意义的差别。

 

WILL THE PASSING STANDARDS CHANGE FOR THE COMPUTER-BASED EXAM?

No. The passing standards will remain the same. The passing score is determined by the certification's corresponding AWS standard that governs it; in the case of CWI, the standards is AWS QC1.

计算机考试的合格标准会改变吗?

不,合格的标准将保持不变。合格的分数由认证的相应的AWS标准决定;对于CWI,标准为AWS QC1。

 

WHEN WILL I FIND OUT MY SCORE ON MY CBT EXAM?

Before you leave the Prometric testing facility, you will be given a Notice of Completion stating a pass/fail status. Please note: this score report is only preliminary, pending verification from AWS. Your official score report will come directly from AWS.

我什么时候才能知道我的CBT考试成绩?

在离开Prometric考试机构之前,您将收到一份完成通知,说明通过/未通过状态。请注意:本评分报告只是初步的,有待美国焊接学会验证。您的官方分数报告将直接来自AWS。

 

AWS and CBT

AWSCBT

WHEN DID AWS CHANGE TO CBT?

AWS has been using Prometric to administer its CWS, CWSR, CWI endorsements, and SCWI exams since late 2016. In May, 2019, Part A (Fundamentals) and Part C (Codebook) of the CWI exam, were added to the AWS Prometric CBT catalog.

AWS何时改为CBT

自2016年底以来,美国焊接学会一直使用Prometric管理其CWS、CWSR、CWI9年续证考试(Part C)和SCWI考试。2019年5月,将CWI考试的A部分(基础)和C部分(标准)添加到AWS Prometric CBT目录中。

 

 

IF I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT SOMETHING DURING THE EXAM, WILL SOMEONE BE ABLE TO HELP ME?

Prometric staff can only address issues related to the test environment. They cannot answer questions regarding the structure or content of the exams. If you have any comments or feedback regarding the exam, please notify us directly via AWS' online Certification Exam Feedback Form: www.aws.org/certification/page/exam-feedback. If you have concerns with the testing environment at the Prometric center, please inform a Prometric staff member.

如果我在考试中有什么问题,有人能帮我吗?

Prometric工作人员只能处理与考试环境相关的问题。他们不能回答有关考试结构或内容的问题。如果您对考试有任何意见或反馈,请直接通过AWS的在线认证考试反馈表通知我们:www.aws.org/certification/page/exam-feedback。如果您对Prometric中心的考试环境有疑问,请通知Prometric工作人员。

 

What Happens If... Operational Concerns

如果……考试过程中出现问题

WHAT IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG AT THE PROMETRIC TESTING CENTER?

In the unlikely event that some unforeseen circumstance at a Prometric center negatively impacts your testing experience, be sure to report your issue to the Prometric staff. The feedback exam candidates give to Prometric test supervisors is recorded and reported to AWS staff, so that the incident can be investigated.

如果Prometric测试中心出了问题怎么办?

如果Prometric中心的一些不可预见的情况对您的考试造成负面影响,请务必向Prometric员工报告您的问题。将应试者反馈给Prometric考试主管的信息记录下来并报告给AWS工作人员,以便对事件进行调查。

 

The Application Process – General

申请流程-概述

WILL THE APPLICATION/REGISTRATION PROCESS CHANGE WITH THE LAUNCH OF COMPUTER-BASED TESTING?

The application process will remain the same. Candidates will complete an application form and pay for the exam as usual. Once the application is verified by AWS staff, the candidate will receive a confirmation letter with a Prometric eligibility code permitting the candidate to schedule their exam at a Prometric testing center.

随着计算机的考试的启动,申请/注册过程会发生变化吗?

申请流程将保持不变。考生将像往常一样填写申请表并支付考试费用。一旦AWS工作人员对申请审核通过,候选人将收到一封确认函,其中包含一个Prometric资格代码,允许候选人在Prometric测试中心安排考试。

 

WHEN ARE THE APPLICATION DEADLINES FOR THE COMPUTER-BASED TESTING?

For CWS, CWSR, and SCWI exams, application deadlines are flexible, depending on your scheduling preferences and availability to take the exam at Prometric. Candidates will find the best availability at Prometric sites when scheduling at least thirty (30) days in advance. In general, if you schedule your exam at least 30 days in advance, your Prometric testing site should be available.

计算机考试的申请截止日期是什么时候?

对于CWS、CWSR和SCWI考试,申请截止日期是灵活的,这取决于您的日程安排和在Prometric参加考试的可选日期。在提前至少30天安排行程时,考生将在Prometric网站找到最佳可选考试日期。一般来说,如果你提前至少30天安排考试,你的Prometric考点应该是可预约的。

 

Scheduling Your Exam – General

预约你的考试–常规

CAN I PICK WHAT START TIME MY EXAM WILL BE?

Prometric schedules exams in windows, typically a morning window and an afternoon window, and you may select one or the other depending on availability. You will not be able to choose a specific start time (e.g. 10:30am), but select an available time slot in either the morning or the afternoon.

我能选择考试的开始时间吗?

Prometric在网上预约安排考试,时间通常是上午和下午,您可以根据合适的选择日期和时间。您将无法选择特定的开始时间(例如上午10:30),但可以选择考上午或下午的可用时段。

 

CAN I SCHEDULE MY EXAM BY WALKING INTO THE LOCAL PROMETRIC TESTING CENTER AND TALKING TO A STAFF PERSON THERE?

Exams cannot be scheduled by walking into a Prometrics location. All exams must be scheduled online or over the phone.

我能去当地的考试中心,直接向那里的工作人员预约安排我的考试吗?

不能去当地的考试中心预约安排考试。所有考试必须安排在网上或通过电话进行。

 

WHY DO I HAVE TO CONTACT PROMETRIC TO SCHEDULE AN EXAM DATE AND TIME? CAN’T SOMEONE AT AWS JUST SCHEDULE ME?

As a third party, AWS cannot schedule exam candidates for CBT exams. The Prometric website has the most current schedule, and AWS doesn’t have access to the Prometric schedule. Here is the link to schedule an AWS exam at Prometric:

www.prometric.com/en-us/clients/aws/Pages/landing.aspx.

Upon registering for your exam, you will receive a confirmation email with an elibigility ID that you use to schedule it.

为什么我必须联系Prometric来预约考试日期和时间?AWS的人不能替我预约吗?

作为第三方,AWS不能为CBT考试预约考生。Prometric网站有最新的日程安排,而AWS干预Prometric日程安排。以下是在Prometric预约AWS考试的链接:

www.prometric.com/en-us/clients/aws/pages/landing.aspx.

考试报名成功后,您将收到一封AWS的电子邮件确认函,包含用于预约考试的elibigibility ID。

 

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A CBT EXAM?

For CWI examinations that include the Part B practical portion, the application and scheduling process will remain the same for Part B only. For all other non-practical exams, you will receive an eligibility ID with your confirmation letter. You can then schedule an exam with Prometric once you receive your confirmation letter by going online to register at www.prometric.com/aws or calling their 1-800-864-5257.

如何安排CBT考试?

对于包含B部分实践部分的CWI考试,申请和排程流程仅对B部分保持不变。对于所有其他非实践性考试,您将收到一个资格ID和确认函。一旦您收到确认函,您就可以安排Prometric考试,方法是在线注册www.prometric.com/aws或致电010-82345674

 

CAN I GO TO THE PROMETRIC WEBSITE TODAY TO SCHEDULE MY EXAM?

Until you have received your AWS confirmation letter that includes an Eligibility Code, you will not be able to schedule your exam with Prometric.

我今天能去Prometric网站预约考试吗?

在收到包含资格代码的AWS确认函之前,您将无法预约Prometric考试。

 

WHAT IS AN "ELIGIBILITY CODE"?

An eligibility code is provided in a candidate’s AWS confirmation letter for use in registering at Prometric. These codes indicate to Prometric that the exam candidate has been authorized by AWS to sit for the exam.

什么是“资格代码”?

考生的AWS确认函中提供了一个资格代码,用于Prometric预约考试。这个代码向Prometric表明,考生已获得AWS的授权参加考试的资格。

 

IF MY ELIGIBILITY CODE DOESN'T WORK, WHOM DO I CONTACT?

Please contact AWS by phone at (800) 443-9353, Option 3, during business hours for fastest service. You may also email AWS after hours or on weekends at certification@aws.org.

如果我的资格代码有问题,我应该联系谁?

工作时间内(周一至周五8:30~5:00),请致电021-64858626联系SWS,以获得最快的服务,或者发送电子邮件至:hjxh@shws.org。

 

WILL THERE BE INSTANCES IN WHICH PROMETRIC HAS NO SEATS AVAILABLE FOR THE CWI ?

AWS is committed to ensuring that each candidate has a fair opportunity to test. Prometric guarantees availability of a seat within 30 days of the creation of the eligibility code. If there are any problems that originate from AWS or Prometric, we will act to minimize any additional cost or inconvenience to the customer. If you experience any problems or are having difficulty finding a seat, please contact AWS by phone at (800) 443-9353, Option 3, during business hours.

会不会有Prometric没有CWI的考试席位?

AWS致力于确保每个考生都有公平的考试机会。Prometric保证在创建资格代码后30天内提供座位。如果有任何问题源于AWS或Prometric,我们将尽可能减少对客户造成的任何额外成本或不便。如果您遇到任何问题或无法预约席位,请在营业时间内通过电话010-82345674联系Prometric。

 

HOW MANY DAYS IN ADVANCE CAN A CANDIDATE CANCEL THEIR EXAM AT PROMETRIC?

Your exam date is tied to your eligibility code. If you cancel thirty (30) days or more in advance of your exam, you will not be subject to Prometric's cancellation and rescheduling policies and fees.

考生可以提前多少天取消他们在Prometric的考试预约?

您的考试日期与您的资格代码有关。如果您提前30天或更长时间取消考试预约,您将不会受到Prometric取消和重新安排政策和费用的限制。

 

HOW DO I RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL AN EXISTING PROMETRIC TEST APPOINTMENT, AND IS THERE A FEE ASSOCIATED WITH THE REQUEST?

You can reschedule or cancel a test two (2) business days prior to your appointment by contacting Prometric directly. If you are scheduled for a Monday exam, you must reschedule or cancel on Friday (which is the previous business day). Both AWS and Prometric, fees will apply when cancelling or rescheduling your exam between 2 and 30 days of your appointment. Please note: a delayed testing date must still be within the 60-day eligibility window for CWI. Additionally, a cancellation will nullify your opportunity to test without additional fees to AWS.

如何重新预约或取消现有的Prometric考试预约,是否有费用的增减?

您可以在预约前2个工作日通过直接联系Prometric重新预约或取消考试。如果您计划周一考试,您必须在周五(前一个工作日)重新预约或取消考试。AWS和Prometric都会在预约后2到30天内取消或重新预约考试。请注意:延迟的考试日期必须在CWI的60天合格期内。此外,取消将使您的考试机会无效,而不向AWS收取额外费用。

 

IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY EXAM AT PROMETRIC, CAN I DO THAT WITHOUT PAYING A FEE?

If an eligibility code is used for scheduling the Prometric exam, the customer is subject to Prometric's cancellation and rescheduling policies and fees. These fees are collected by Prometric directly from the exam candidate. 30 days or more in advance of the scheduled date does not incur any fees.

如果我需要在Prometric重新预约考试时间,我可以在不支付费用的情况下完成吗?

如果使用资格代码预约Prometric考试,则客户需要接受Prometric的取消和重新预约政策和费用。这些费用由Prometric直接向应试者收取。提前30天或以上不收取任何费用。

 

Scheduling Your Exam – CWI Part A and Part C

预约考试–CWI  A部分和C部分

CAN I GO TO THE PROMETRIC WEBSITE TODAY TO SCHEDULE MY CWI PART A AND PART C EXAM?

Until you have received an AWS confirmation letter that includes your Eligibility Code, you will not be able to schedule any portion of your exam with Prometric.

我今天可以去Prometric网站预约我的CWI  A部分和C部分考试吗?

在收到包含资格代码的AWS确认函之前,您将无法预约任何Prometric的考试。

 

WHY CAN’T I TAKE THE CWI EXAM ALL IN ONE WEEKEND LIKE BEFORE?

Depending on availability at your local Prometric testing center, taking all three parts of your CWI exam on the same weekend may be possible. Once you receive your confirmation letter with eligibility code, you may be able to schedule CWI Part A and CWI Part C for the Sunday after a Saturday administration of the CWI Part B.

为什么我不能像以前一样在一个周末里参加所有的CWI考试?

根据当地Prometric考试中心的可用性,可以在同一周末参加CWI考试的所有三个部分。一旦您收到带有资格代码的确认函,您可以在周六完成CWI B部分的考试之后,预约参加周日CWI A部分和CWI C部分的考试。

 

IF I THINK I’M NOT DOING WELL DURING THE EXAM AT PROMETRIC, CAN I CANCEL MY EXAM? IF I THINK THAT I DID GREAT ON PART A, BUT PART C WAS BAD, CAN I CANCEL JUST PART C?

If you choose to cancel any part of your in-progress exam before all three parts are completed, you will forfeit both the entire Prometric exam fee and the full AWS fee, and you will be required to retake all three parts of the exam again. An incomplete exam counts as an attempt towards the total number exams allowed.

如果我认为我在prometric考试中做得不好,我可以取消考试吗?如果我认为我在A部分做得很好,但C部分做得不好,我可以取消C部分吗?

如果您选择在所有三个部分完成之前取消正在进行的考试的任何部分,您将同时浪费整个Prometric考试费用和全部AWS费用,并且您将被要求重新付费参加所有三个部分的考试。未完成的考试不做计分。

 

I SCHEDULED CWI PART A AND PART C FOR THE SAME DAY; WHICH PART WILL I SEE FIRST?

Depends on which you schedule – you can choose. When you schedule your exam, you are given the option to choose the order in which you prefer to take Parts A and C of your exam.

我将CWI  A部分和C部分安排在同一天;我将首先看到哪个部分?

取决于你的日程安排——你可以自行选择。当你预约你的考试时,你可以选择你参加A和C部分考试的顺序。

 

CAN I TAKE CWI PARTS A AND C BEFORE I TAKE PART B?

All candidates will be required to take the Part B practical portion of the exam before Parts A and C. Candidates may choose whether to take Part A before Part C or vice versa, but both must be after Part B has been completed and within 60 days of Part B.

在我参加B部分之前,我可以参加C部分和A部分吗?

所有考生都必须在A部分和C部分之前参加B部分的考试。考生可以选择是在C部分之前参加A部分考试,还是在C部分之前参加A部分考试,但两者都必须在B部分完成后60天内参加。

 

WHY IS THERE A GAP BETWEEN CWI PART A AND PART C? CAN THEY BE BACK-TO-BACK EXAMS?

Prometric treats CWI Part A and CWI Part C as two separate exams, and thus they are scheduled separately. Although they may be on the same day, they may be some hours apart, depending on the availability of various exam seats at the local Prometric center.

为什么CWI  A部分和C部分之间存在间隔?能连续参加考试吗?

Prometric将CWI A部分和CWI C部分视为两个单独的考试,因此它们是单独安排的。尽管它们可能在同一天考试,但它们可能相隔几个小时,这取决于当地Prometric中心各种考试座位的可用性。

 

International CWI Exams

国际CWI考试

WHEN DOES CBT ROLL OUT INTERNATIONALLY?

Computer-based testing for the CWI Exam, Parts A and C, will begin in May 2019 for both international and US examinees.

CBT何时在国际上推出?

国际和美国考生将于2019年5月开始对CWI考试A和C部分进行计算机考试。

 

FOR INTERNATIONAL CANDIDATES, HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY ELIGIBILITY CODE?

On average and barring extenuating circumstances, international applications are processed in approximately [insert time here 4-6 weeks? 30 days?] from the time the application is received. Once an application is processed, eligibility codes for parts A and C are created and emailed directly to the candidate. AWS Coordinators will send a follow-up email to the Agency within 24 hours of processing with all eligibility letters.

对于国际考生而言,获取资格代码需要多长时间?

一般来说,除非有特殊情况,国际考生的申请大约在4-6周内处理完成。从收到申请时起。一旦申请处理完成,将创建A和C部分的资格代码并直接通过电子邮件发送给考生。AWS协调员将在处理所有资格信后24小时内,向代理机构发送一封后续电子邮件。

 

What to Expect on Test Day

考试日的要求

HOW MUCH TIME WILL I HAVE TO COMPLETE EACH EXAM PART AT PROMETRIC?

All certification exams are two (2) hours in duration. If you are taking an exam with multiple parts (for example, CWI, Parts A and C), each part is two (2) hours in duration. However, expect to be at the test center for approximately three hours (per part) as additional time is needed for check-in/check-out, and to review the pre-exam tutorial.

我需要多少时间在Prometric完成每个考试部分?

所有认证考试的持续时间为2小时。如果您参加的考试有多个部分(例如,CWI、A部分和C部分),则每个部分的持续时间为2小时。但是,由于签到/离开需要额外的时间,并且需要复习考试前教程,因此预计将在考试中心停留大约3个小时(每个部分)。

 

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME TO THE PROMETRIC TESTING SITE?

Please bring a current government issued form of identification (e.g. photo ID or driver’s license, passport) that exactly matches the information that Prometric has in its records. You will be allowed to bring an AWS pre-approved calculator. For open book exams, you will be allowed to bring in references that are specifically stated in the exam’s Body of Knowledge [is there a page on our site where someone can link?]. You may bring in a hard copy of the reference bound in a three-ring binder, or in the original printer binding:

www.aws.org/library/doclib/ApplicantInstructions-CWI-CBT.pdf

You will not have access to your personal belongings except for medical comforts.

我需要带什么去Prometric考试中心?

请携带与Prometric记录中的信息完全匹配的当前政府签发的身份证明(如照片ID或驾驶证、护照)。您可以携带一台AWS允许带入的计算器。对于开卷考试,你可以带上在考试知识体系中明确规定的参考资料,您可以将装订在三环活页夹或原始打印机装订中的参考资料的打印件带来:

www.aws.org/library/doclib/applicantinstructions-cwi-cbt.pdf

您将无法使用您的个人物品,除了医疗用品。

 

WHICH CALCULATORS HAS AWS PRE-APPROVED?

Candidates are allowed to bring scientific, construction, or four-function calculators. A basic, four function calculator will also be provided on your computer screen during your exam at Prometric. More specific information is provided in the applicant instructions you will receive prior to testing. www.aws.org/library/doclib/ApplicantInstructions-CWI-CBT.pdf.

哪种计算器是AWS允许带入的?

学员可以携带科学、结构或四个功能计算器。在Prometric考试期间,计算机屏幕上还将提供一个基本的四功能计算器。在考试前,您将收到的申请人说明中提供了更具体的信息。www.aws.org/library/doclib/applicantinstructions-cwi-cbt.pdf

 

HOW MUCH ROOM WILL HAVE I HAVE TO SPREAD OUT AT THE PROMETRIC TEST CENTER? THE D1.1 IS PRETTY BIG WHEN IT’S LYING OPEN?

There should be enough room at the carrell for the computer, the computer monitor, the keyboard, a mouse and mousepad, your codebook, and scratch paper.

我要在考试中心需要有多少空间?D1.1在打开的时候相当大?

考试中心应该有足够的空间放电脑、电脑显示器、键盘、鼠标垫、标准规范书籍和草稿纸。

 

WHAT IF I REALIZE THAT I’M SEEING THE WRONG TEST (E.G. THE EXAM IS IN THE WRONG LANGUAGE) WHEN THE TEST BEGINS?

In this unlikely event, please notify the Prometric test center administrator right away.

如果我意识到我在考试开始时看到了错误的试题(例如考试用的是错误的语言),那该怎么办?

一般不太可能发生这种情况,如果发生请立即通知Prometric考试中心管理员。

 

FOR EXAMS THAT HAVE A LARGE PDF DOCUMENT AS A REFERENCE (FOR CODEBOOK EXAMS LIKE CWI PART C), IT MAY TAKE A WHILE FOR THE DOCUMENT TO LOAD ON THE SCREEN. DOES THE DOCUMENT LOADING TIME CUT INTO MY TESTING TIME?

The computer system at Prometric is designed so that testing time is paused while large documents load.

对于以大型PDF文档作为参考的考试(对于标准考试,如CWI C部分),可能需要一段时间才能将文档加载到屏幕上。文档加载时间是否缩短了我的考试时间?

Prometric的计算机系统在加载大文档时会暂停考试时间。

 

I SHOWED UP AT THE PROMETRIC TEST CENTER TO TAKE CWI PART C AND WAS NOT PERMITTED TO USE MY CODEBOOK. WHAT DO I DO?

Most exams that Prometric offers are closed-book exams, so test supervisors may initially be unfamiliar with the AWS rules for codebook exams. Prometric test supervisors are required to examine codebooks to ensure that they meet AWS’s requirements for the exam. Candidates may tab or highlight their codebook prior to the exam, but loose-leaf papers or sticky-notes are not permitted. Please be sure that your codebooks are free from loose-leaf papers or sticky-notes before presenting to the Prometric test supervisor, or you may not be permitted to bring it into the exam with you. For more information, please review the Applicant Instructions contained in your Confirmation Letter for additional information or by using this link:

www.aws.org/cwi-cbt-applicant-instructions

If you believe you are unfairly being denied use of your codebook during your exam, please log the issue with the test center administrator. In some cases, it may be possible for the test center administrator to contact AWS for clarification on the rules while you’re still there. If you’re not able to resolve the issue at the test center, please contact AWS so that we can investigate the situation.

我到Prometric考试中心参加了CWI C部分的考试,不允许使用我的标准。我该怎么办?

Prometric提供的大多数考试都是闭卷考试,因此考试主管最初可能不熟悉AWS的标准考试规则。Prometric考试主管需要检查标准,以确保其符合AWS的考试要求。考生可以在考试前标记或高光他们的代码本,但不允许使用活页纸或便签。在提交给Prometric考试主管之前,请确保您的标准没有活页纸或便签,否则您可能不被允许带到考试中。有关更多信息,请查看确认函中包含的申请人说明以获取更多信息或使用以下链接:

www.aws.org/cwi-cbt-applicant-instructions

如果您认为您在考试期间被不公平地拒绝使用标准,请向考试中心管理员记录该问题。在某些情况下,当您还在考试中心时,考试中心管理员可能会联系AWS,以对规则进行澄清。如果您无法在考试中心解决问题,请联系AWS,以便我们调查情况。

 

IS THERE A SCHEDULED BREAK IN THE MIDDLE OF CWI PART A OR CWI PART C?

There are no scheduled breaks during the two-hour exam. If you need to leave the room during the test, you may do so with the proctor’s guidance. However, the exam clock will continue to run while you leave the room and you will not be given time after the exam ends to compensate for the time you were out of the room.

CWI  A部分或CWI C部分中间是否有预定休息时间?

两小时的考试没有安排休息时间。如果您需要在考试期间离开房间,您可以在监考的指导下离开。但是,当您离开房间时,考试时钟将继续运行,并且在考试结束后,您将无法获得时间来补偿您离开房间的时间。

 

CAN I TAKE A BREAK DURING THE EXAM AT PROMETRIC?

Breaks will be allowed during an exam but will be counted against your allotted time. If you need to leave the room, please notify the proctor. You will need to sign out and then sign back in when you return. If you have scheduled two exams on the same day, there will likely be a large time gap between the two exams.

我可以在Prometric考试期间休息一下吗?

考试期间允许休息,但将计入您考试的时间。如果您需要离开房间,请通知监考。您需要注销,然后在返回时重新登录。如果你在同一天安排了两次考试,两次考试之间可能会有很大的时间间隔。

 

WILL THERE BE A CALCULATOR ON THE SCREEN FOR THE EXAM AT PROMETRIC OR WILL I NEED TO BRING MY OWN?

There will be an on-screen, four-function calculator available during the exam. Candidates are also permitted to bring a calculator. Please refer to this link:

www.aws.org/cwi-cbt-applicant-instructions

Candidates are allowed to bring scientific, construction, or four-function calculators. A basic, four-function calculator will also be provided on your computer screen during your exam at Prometric. More specific information is provided in the applicant instructions you will receive prior to testing. www.aws.org/library/doclib/ApplicantInstructions-CWI-CBT.pdf.

Prometric考试的屏幕上会有计算器吗?还是我需要带上自己的计算器?

考试期间将提供一个屏幕上的四功能计算器。考生也可以携带计算器。请参阅此链接:

www.aws.org/cwi-cbt-applicant-instructions

考生可以携带科学、结构或四个功能计算器。在Prometric考试期间,计算机屏幕上还将提供一个基本的四功能计算器。在测试前,您将收到的申请人说明中提供了更具体的信息。www.aws.org/library/doclib/applicantinstructions-cwi-cbt.pdf

 

HOW WILL I BE ABLE TO TELL HOW MUCH TIME IS LEFT WHILE I’M TAKING THE TEST?

WHAT IF I FAIL TO APPEAR FOR THE EXAM AT A PROMETRIC TESTING SITE?

Your request for such a waiver must be made in writing and supported by verifying documentation from a third party. For example, in the case of a medical emergency, a written statement from your physician which clearly states that you were physically unable to appear for the exam due to personal or immediate family medical issues is required. If you have another type of emergency, then you must provide third party verification for your late withdrawal notice or the reason you were unable to sit for the scheduled exam. Your request must be received within ten business days after the exam dates. Requests received after the ten-business-day timeframe, or that are not supported by verifying documentation, will not be reviewed. Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis after ten ten-business-day timeframe.

如果我没能参加预约的Prometric考试怎么办?

如果你没有参加考试,你交给prometric和aws的考试费用将不会退回,但在医疗或其他紧急情况下除外。您的弃权请求必须以书面形式提出,并由第三方核实文件予以支持。例如,在医疗紧急情况下,需要医生的书面陈述,明确说明由于个人或直系亲属的医疗问题,您无法参加考试。如果您有其他类型的紧急情况,那么您必须为您延迟或无法参加预定考试的原因提供第三方验证。您的申请必须在考试日期后10个工作日内收到。在10个工作日期限之后收到的请求,或验证文档不支持的请求,将不会被审查。请求将在十个工作日后逐案审查。

 

CWI Exam-Related Questions

CWI考试相关问题

WHEN DO I NEED TO FINISH ALL PARTS OF THE CWI EXAM?

All exam candidates have no more than 60 days to take both Parts A and C of their CWI exam after completing Part B.

我什么时候需要完成CWI考试的所有部分?

所有考生必须在完成B部分的考试后60天内完成其CWI考试的A部分和C部分的考试。

 

ARE FORMULAS PROVIDED FOR CALCULATIONS ON THE CWI EXAM?

Yes. Formulas are provided within the computer-based exam and will be accessible from a link on the computer screen for CWI Part A.

是否提供了计算CWI考试的公式?

对。公式在基于计算机的考试中提供,可通过计算机屏幕上的链接访问CWI A部分。

 

REQUIRING CWI PART B BEFORE CWI PART A IS ILLOGICAL, SINCE PART A IS THE FUNDAMENTALS AND PART B TESTS THE HIGHER-LEVEL SKILLS OF INSPECTION. FURTHER, THE AWS QC1:2016 STANDARD SUGGESTS THAT PART A SHOULD BE OFFERED BEFORE PARTS B AND C. SO WHY ARE APPLICANTS REQUIRED TO TAKE PART B FIRST?

Historically, CWI exam candidates have been taking Part B before completing the other parts, although all three parts were offered on the same day. Because Part B requires the use of physical samples and tools, it is more efficient for CWI candidates to take this part of the exam first, followed by Parts A and C at later dates. Parts A and C can now be taken in whichever order the candidate prefers. Although Part B must be completed first in time, all parts are being scored together as a single exam.

CWI A部分之前要求CWI B部分是不合逻辑的,因为A部分是基础,B部分测试更高级别的检查技能。此外,AWS QC1:2016标准建议A部分应先于B部分和C部分提供。那么,为什么要求考生首先参加B部分?

历史上,CWI考试的考生在完成其他部分之前一直在参加B部分,尽管这三部分都是在同一天提供的。由于B部分要求使用试样和工具,因此对于CWI考生来说,先参加这部分考试更为有效,之后再参加A部分和C部分考试。A部分和C部分现在可以按照考生偏好的顺序进行。虽然B部分必须在第一时间完成,但所有部分将作为一次考试一起计分。

 

DO I NEED TO COMPLETE CWI PART B ON PAPER IN ORDER TO SCHEDULE PARTS A AND C ON COMPUTER?

Passing the Part B is not a prerequisite to test to Parts A and C. Eligibility codes for A and C will be provided shortly before the Part B test, allowing the candidate/agent to schedule Parts A and C soon after the Part B exam has been completed. Eligibility Start and End dates will be limited to 60 days after the Part B date. Scores for all three Parts are not reported until all parts have been completed. Failure to sit for any Part of the exam will result in a zero (0) score for that Part.

我是否需要先完成CWI B部分纸质考试,才能在计算机上预约AC部分?

通过B部分不是A和C部分考试的先决条件。A和C部分的资格代码将在B部分考试前不久提供,允许考生/代理人在B部分考试完成后不久安排A和C部分。资格开始和结束日期将限制在B部分日期后60天内。所有三个部分的分数在所有部分完成后才报告。如果没有参加考试的任何部分,该部分的分数将为零(0)。

 

DO I HAVE TO TAKE BOTH CWI PART A AND PART C ON THE SAME DAY?

No. While most candidates choose to schedule both exams for the same day, candidates are welcome to choose a schedule that works best for them. The only requirement is that both Parts A and C are completed within the 60-day testing window after CWI Part B is completed, and within the limitations of the Prometric testing center’s availability.

我必须在同一天同时参加CWI A部分和C部分吗?

不需要。虽然大多数考生选择将两次考试安排在同一天,但欢迎考生选择最适合自己的考试安排。唯一的要求是A部分和C部分在CWI B部分完成后的60天内完成,并且在Prometric考试中心可用性的限制范围内完成。

 

AM I ALLOWED TO TAB MY CODEBOOK FOR CWI PART C?

Prometric test supervisors are required to examine all codebooks to ensure that they meet AWS’s requirements for the exam. Candidates may tab or highlight their codebook prior to the exam, but loose-leaf papers or sticky-notes are not permitted. Please be sure that your codebooks are free from loose-leaf papers or sticky-notes before presenting to the Prometric test supervisor, or you may not be permitted to bring it into the exam with you. For more information, please review the Applicant Instructions contained in your Confirmation Letter for additional information or by using this link: www.aws.org/cwi-cbt-applicant-instructions.

我可以在Part C考试中在的标准规范书籍上做标签吗?

Prometric考试主管需要检查所有标准,以确保它们符合AWS的考试要求。考生可以在考试前标记或高光他们的标准规范书籍,但不允许使用活页纸或便签。在提交给Prometric考试主管之前,请确保您的标准书没有活页纸或便签,否则您可能不被允许带到考试中。有关更多信息,请查看确认函中包含的申请人说明以获取更多信息,或使用以下链接:www.aws.org/cwi-cbt-applicant-instructions

考试后预期

WILL I KNOW THAT I’VE PASSED CWI PART B BEFORE I SIT FOR CWI PART A AND CWI PART C AT THE PROMETRIC CENTER?

No. Candidates will receive scores for CWI Part B after AWS has received scores from all three parts of the CWI exam.

我能否在去Prometric考试中心参加CWI A部分和CWI C部分之前,知晓是否已经通过了CWI B部分的考试?

不可以。在美国焊接学会对CWI考试的所有三个部分考试判卷计分后,考生才能知晓CWI B部分的分数。

 

WILL MY PRELIMINARY SCORE REPORT AT PROMETRIC SHOW HOW I DID ON EACH DIFFERENT SECTION OF THE CWI EXAM?

The preliminary score report from Prometric will only indicate a pass or fail status for the exam part that was just completed; the more detailed breakdown of your exam performance will come from AWS when all your exam scores have been received.

我在Prometric的初步成绩报告会显示我在CWI考试的每个不同部分的表现吗?

It may be possible for a Prometric test supervisor to print out your exam results after the exam ends.

计算机考试后,我能打印出初步的考试结果吗?

Prometric考试主管可以在考试结束后打印出考试结果给您

 

IF I FAIL EITHER CWI PART A OR PART C, HOW SOON CAN I TAKE THE TEST AGAIN?

You will see your preliminary Pass/Fail status immediately; however, you must wait for your official score letter from AWS reflecting your performance on all three parts of the exam prior to retesting. If you need to retest, please click this link: awsprodportal.aws.org.

如果我没有通过CWIA部分或C部分,我能在多长时间内再次参加考试?
