Certification Development Process
All certification programs follow ASQE’s ISO 17024 accredited exam development process to ensure the validity and reliability of ASQE examinations. Over the course of one year (minimum), ASQE works with subject matter experts (SMEs) to design, develop, and solidify a comprehensive body of knowledge and examination. A brief overview of ASQE’s exam development process and minimum requirements for a custom certification are below.
Test questions are reviewed and revised by another group of SMEs who check the quality of the questions and response options, confirm that each question has only one correct answer, and verify the references and BoK classifications for each question.
Once the pilot form is established, SMEs set the performance standards of the exam known as the "minimum qualifications". The minimum qualifications are used as a guide to determine the passing score for the pilot exam.
Workshop Duration: 1 month
Subject Matter Experts Required: 17
