How Pretests and Posttests Test Your Knowledge Quizzes Work

Each competency has a pretest at the beginning and a posttest at the end called "Test Your Knowledge." The pretest enables you to see how much you know about a topic. You can skip the pretest and go straight to the competency. The posttest helps you see whether you've learned the competency content.
