1.     Does the GRS10 provide CME credits or ABIM MOC points?

Yes, if you are an individual subscriber and pass the 360-question exam with a 70% score or higher, you may claim 100 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM and/or 100 ABIM MOC points. These credits must be claimed between January 15, 2019 and December 31, 2021 and are not available to those with an institutional subscription. 

2.     What happens if I don’t pass the exam the first time?

You may re-take the exam a second time. 

3.     What is the difference between a Practice Test and the CME Exam?

Practice Tests allow you to test yourself by answering questions from any or all GRS topics before taking the exam for credit. You may take as many Practice Tests as you like. The CME Exam covers all GRS topics and may not be re-taken after successful completion of the exam. 

4.     How can I see my score?

After completing all questions in an online Practice Test, you can submit the test and review results in the "My Test Results & Tests in Progress" section. If the Practice Test was created through the GRS10 Mobile App, scores are also displayed on the device they were created on in the “My Account” section of the app. 

5.     Can I leave a Practice Test or the CME Exam in progress and complete it later?

Yes. You may choose to save and exit a Practice Test or the CME Exam at any time. Submitted answers will be saved and you can resume the Practice Test or CME Exam by visiting the "My Test Results & Tests in Progress" section of the self-assessment program. Since tests are platform dependent, they must be finished in the format they were started in (through GeriatricsCareOnline.org or with the GRS10 Mobile App using the device they were created with). 

6.     What is the "My Test Results & Tests in Progress" section and how do I use it?

This section allows you to resume any Practice Tests taken online or the online CME Exam in progress and to view and access all test results.  

7.     What is the difference between the Pre-test and the CME Exam?

The ten Pre-test questions are designed to measure your understanding of the material before reading the GRS10. Pre-test questions are from the CME Exam and must be answered and submitted before you can start the CME Exam. Critiques are not provided for Pre-test questions, but are provided for each CME Exam question. Pre-test questions will be repeated within the list of CME Exam questions.

8.     What features are available in the Self-Assessment module?

Bookmark a question that you wish to revisit later. Bookmarked questions are accessible with the "Bookmarked/Skipped Questions" button.
Skip a Question and return to it later. When you advance to the next question without submitting an answer, you will be prompted to confirm that you wish to skip the question. You can access skipped questions by selecting the "Bookmarked/Skipped Questions" button.
Save & Exit a Practice Test or the CME Exam at any point with the “Save & Exit” button. Resume by visiting the "My Results & Test in Progress" section online, or the “My Account” section in the GRS10 Mobile App. 

9.     After a question is answered and submitted, can I go back and change my answer?

No. Once an answer is submitted and the correct answer and critique are displayed, changes cannot be made. However, you can create a new Practice Test in the same topic and answer the question again there. Also, on the CME Exam, if you answer fewer than 70% of the questions correctly, you can retake the entire CME exam. 

10.  How many questions do I have to get right to pass the CME Exam?

You must answer at least 252 questions correctly to pass the exam. 

11.  How do I print my CME certificate?

Once you successfully complete the CME Exam, your CME certificate will be available for downloading and printing from the "My Test Results & Tests in Progress" section.

12.  What happens to my submitted GRS10 User Evaluation? 

Feedback and suggestions received from submitted user evaluations about the GRS10 Self-Assessment program are reviewed as part of ongoing continuous improvements in the program and for planning the next GRS edition.

13. How do I submit for MOC credit?
