How do I take a practice text or do an exercise on excel essentials?  when i click on the exercise it prints it out as an pdf.  I want to physically take the test and then have it graded.  Please help.

Hi James


I can see that you have a private single-user subscription rather than one that is allocated by a teacher (or course provider).  In this case you do not have an attached teacher who can grade your work.


Many schools, colleges, universities and corporations have multi-user subscriptions.  In this model the teacher allocates an individual student account to each student.  While your private single-user subscription provides both the Exercise and Exercise Answers, a teacher is able to switch off the answers so that students only see the Exercise (and not the answers).


These settings are available in Settings tab of the Student/Teacher console.




If you are currently in full or part time education you may wish to ask your educational establishment to take out a multi-user subscription so that they can grade your work.   You can find a short video showing how our multi-user accounts work and are administered here:
