If you did not get a passing score, you will be able to retake the test as many times as you need until you pass. The system will keep your highest score.
If you are not sure what score you need to pass, it is noted on the activity's Introduction page.
If your score meets the requirement to receive credit, at the top of the results screen, you will see a link to complete the last step: Post-Evaluation.
