ASQ Certification Moves to Computer-Based Test Delivery

Based on extensive market analysis and member feedback, ASQ is transitioning the delivery of its certification exams from paper and pencil, to computer-based testing, or CBT. The change will occur beginning with the September 28, 2016, exams.

Benefits of the change include an increase of annual administrations from two to six; additional days available for testing from four to 102; more testing location from 350 to 8,000; convenience of retesting reduced from six months to two months; and exam results in zero to four days instead of 10.

Exams initially will be available through computer-based test in English, with translated exams available starting March 2017.
