Higher Education FAQS

You can find this information by going to the "Get Test Results" tab on the home page.

From the home page, click on the "Print my Certificate" tab and sign in using your email address and password. On the next screen, click on the printer icon that appears to the right of the course(s) you've passed. Click the print tab on the next screen.

A passing score is 80%. If you failed a test for Coaching Principles, Sport First Aid, advanced sport-specific, or Officiating Principles online courses, you can order a retest for $10. Please note that the retest you receive will contain a different set of questions than the first test you took, so you will need to complete the entire test. We have developed multiple iterations of the classroom course tests, and the online course tests are randomized, so you'll never get the same test twice.

If you happen to fail a test, your "Courses" screen will indicate "Order retest" under the "Test status" column. Click this link to order a retest. You will be redirected to the retest page on our ecommerce site at CoachEducation.HumanKinetics.com to make the purchase. If you don't already have an account on the ecommerce site, you will need to create one to complete your transaction. After making the purchase, you will receive an email containing links and instructions for taking the retest.

If you attended a classroom course/clinic, you have one year from the date of the course/clinic to complete the test. If you purchased an online course, you have one year from the date of purchase to complete the test.

The answer to this question is no. You may be tempted to complete the "bubble sheet" test and then go to submit your answers online. However, if you do, you'll find that your online test is different than the paper-pencil test.

There are three versions of the Coaching Principles classroom test, and each version has 100 questions. Of these 300 total questions, none is like any other, so there are 300 unique questions. Tests that are taken online are randomly generated from this pool of 300 questions. Because of this random generation, virtually every online test is unique, and no two online tests will have the same questions. Moreover, no online test will have the same questions as any version of the classroom test. The same situation is true for Sport First Aid, except that the Sport First Aid test has 75 questions (not 100), and the total number of Sport First Aid questions is 225 (not 300).

Though the online tests are randomly generated, each will cover the same content covered in the classroom test, and each will have the same number of multiple choice and true false questions included in the classroom test.

The primary purpose of randomly generating the online tests is to minimize the risk of participants sharing or posting answers. The same is true for having three versions of the classroom test.

Another potential problem is with key codes. If you took the classroom version of the course, you have the option of taking your test using a scan form (paper-based) or taking your test online. In your course packet, you received a key code. This code is unique to you and identifies you as the test-taker. If you decide to take the paper version of the test (scan form), you need to enter this code on your scan form. If you decide to take the test online, you need to enter your key code prior to accessing the online test.

A problem arises when, after you decide to take the test online, you discover the online test is different from the classroom test, and you abort your online test in favor of the classroom test and scan form. Because you entered your key code to access the online test, your key code will show "invalid" in our system when your paper test is scanned. The system recognizes your key code as having already been used. Though this problem is fixable, it will cause delays in processing your test and notifying you of your score.
