Welcome to the Foundation HPC-Skills assessment.
The assessment covers all aspects of fundamental HPC competency that are included in the Foundational HPC-Skills Course. It is not required that you have taken the Foundation HPC-Skills course before attempting this assessment, but we would recommend looking at the topics it covers before attempting the assessment. This assessment is to ensure that all researchers have the required skills to ensure that their research codes can be run on DiRAC facilities.
The test should take around 1 hour to complete and consists of 40 multiple-choice questions. If you were invited to take the assessment by direct email, then you will have three months from the date of that email to complete the assessment.
If you have not taken/passed the assessment by the deadline we will contact you and your supervisor to discuss your case. At this point, we will be able to arrange further assistance for you so you can pass the test and continue to use DiRAC resources in your research. Failure to take this test may result in your account on all DiRAC facilities being suspended.
