How exam content is derived

How Exam Content is Derived

  • ABTC contracts with the testing agency Applied Measurement Professionals (AMP) for examination development

  • Under the instruction of AMP, ABTC forms committees of content experts to develop a job task analysis and gather published content materials


How exam content is derived1

How Exam Content is Derived

  • Job Task Analysis Survey is distributed to practicing professionals

  • Survey data is compiled and reviewed by the ABTC Examination Committee and AMP

  • Statistical Analysis is applied that has consistency rules set in advance on what tasks meet the requirements for inclusion on the examination


How exam content is derived2

How Exam Content is Derived

  • Any tasks not given a critical/significant rating are “tossed out”

  • After the committee has rated all critical tasks, cognitive levels are assigned to each task – recall, application or analysis

  • Committee again, under instruction from AMP, determines the distribution of cognitive level tasks over the entire exam content domain.
