Q: Are test takers required to enter demographic data?

No, test takers can opt-out of answering demographic data by selecting, “I do not wish to answer”. Demographic data is used for performing adverse impact analysis on test results. Ramsay Corporation periodically uses data from the Online Testing System to perform statistical analysis of the tests and update global pools for use in reporting and in testing manuals. Providing demographic data helps make the tests better. Due to the sensitive nature of the demographic data of our examinees, only Ramsay Corporation has access to the demographic data.
