ASQ transitioned to computer based testing in the fall of 2016.  Prometric administers the exams which provides individuals much more flexible testing sites and dates than the previous paper and pencil test taking model.  The downside of the computer based examinations is the confined space you will required to work in. 

The questions are on a computer screen and you have the ability to strike out answers you determine not viable and the ability to highlight key words.  You also can flag a question if you choose to pass on it and return later.

You can bring reference materials with you, however everything must be bound.  You cannot bring in loose papers or stapled pages.  They need to be in at least a three ring binder.  We recommend having a slim three ring binder that contains reference material in addition to your book or primer.  The three ring binder may include glossaries, the appendix (to reduce look up time) and any other reference pages.

The security is pretty tight and you will pass through a metal detector to enter the examination room.

Another upside of the new testing format is the immediate results you get.   Years ago it may take several weeks to hear you to did and now you know that day (other than the CMQ/OE which requires evaluation of the essay questions).
