Government Inspection: Modeling

A chance to test your skills

Today, since you only have 30-35 minutes in class, I have a special treat for you.  We’ve enabled the inspection system early (it wasn’t going to go online until the end of next week)!  So you have a chance to test your knowledge about modeling and design concepts. If you prefer a video introduction, click here (or here), otherwise, keep reading.

If you just want to get started right away, click the button below.  Your username is the same and your initial password is changeme.  But if you have a minute, I have a couple things to share with you.

First, you’ll have 3 chances to complete this inspection.  There are 10 questions, taken from a larger bank, so when you retake, it’s likely you’ll only see a few of the same questions.  But the concepts covered will be the same in any case.  You’ll have 20 minutes for each attempt.  A passing score is mastery, which is a 9 or 10.

Second, some success tips.  New employees often feel a strong need to retake their inspection right away if they didn’t pass on the first attempt.  Resist!  You’ll do much better if you consider the questions you didn’t answer correctly and the ones you did.  Think about which areas you are already clearly understanding.  Identify in which areas you need further study.  And identify those areas you weren’t sure about but answered correctly.  Study those areas too – because the questions change, if you’re not confident you know an area, it’s worth a bit more of your time.  Also critical: identify if there are any areas you haven’t yet studied?  There may be jobs you still need to do before taking the inspection again.
