All About the MPJE®
Pretest questions are evaluated for use in future exams, and it is impossible to determine which questions are experimental and which are not. Every question should be approached as if it counts toward your final score. You cannot skip a question, and you must respond to each item in the order in which it is presented. After your selection has been submitted, you cannot go back to review or change your selections to previous questions.
The MPJE exam uses adaptive technology, meaning that as you answer questions, adaptive technology evaluates your responses and uses that information to choose your next test question.
The table below describes each question type and how to answer them to help you better prepare.
