Welcome to the Online Test (OT) interface on Global Standard Tests.
This test has been paid for by Sustainable Development International – SUSDEVI and is therefore coming to you free of charge.
The SDGs Learning Test has been structured in such a way that you can learn about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while being assessed.
1. This test is made up of about 30 questions with multiple choice answers that consist of mostly true/false/not applicable and other responses.
2. To answer each question; click on the Hint and read up the content that will be loaded up in a new page, close the page, return to the question and select the answer option that correlates most with the Hint that you have read.
It is extremely important that you check the hint first before answering any question, even though it may look like the question has been repeated.
3. Maximum time allowed for this test is 30 minutes i.e. about 1 minute per question to allow for proper loading of the Hints even in slower networks. Time taken to finish up and submit will matter (the earlier the better), but this should not be at the expense of answering all questions correctly.
4. This test has maximum number of two trials, which means that you can try it a second time if you feel you scored very poorly at the first attempt; the average of the scores obtained will be recorded for you.
DO NOT attempt the test beyond the number of trials stated here else you be penalized.
5. Once you start the test, avoid refreshing the page except when you have submitted and it is taking too long to show up the result page.
6. You have successfully taken the test the moment you see the result page. Nothing else should bother you after this.
7. In case you experience any network related problem like endless loading or error in database connection (and others) before submitting the test and seeing your result, you can hold on for a moment and try again later. Sometimes, retrying the test with another device or browser can help a lot.
8. It is in your best interest not to disclose the questions or share your experience with anyone, at least until after everyone must have taken theirs.
9. Ensure that your internet connection is stable and reliable before proceeding with the tests.
10. Your friends can use your device to take the test after you have done so, as long as you remember to log out so that they can register and take theirs.
11. You will not have the opportunity to reset your password if you forget it. So consider writing it down somewhere.
12. You can use a mobile phone to take the test, but only if it is of good quality and has enough RAM.
Avoid loading up the test through Facebook Messenger App. Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers should be good.
13. Network issues may affect email delivery. So not receiving an email for each test you take is not a problem.
14. Should you encounter any problem that is not as a result of your own fault or negligence to instructions, please refer to this Facebook Support Post and read through existing comments first.
If you do not find any comment there that addresses your type of issue, quickly go ahead to report your problem as a comment. Only post a comment there if you have a genuine problem!

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were born at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012. The objective was to produce a set of universal goals that meet the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world.
The SDGs replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which started a global effort in 2000 to tackle the indignity of poverty. The MDGs established measurable, universally-agreed objectives for tackling extreme poverty and hunger, preventing deadly diseases, and expanding primary education to all children, among other development priorities.
For 15 years, the MDGs drove progress in several important areas: reducing income poverty, providing much needed access to water and sanitation, driving down child mortality and drastically improving maternal health. They also kick-started a global movement for free primary education, inspiring countries to invest in their future generations. Most significantly, the MDGs made huge strides in combating HIV/AIDS and other treatable diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis.
