Legacy Written Exam Details and Procedures
Please note that in December 2013 the written exam stopped development and has limited support.  Please be certain that the written exam meets your needs before ordering this form of the exam - it is not the same as the online exam and scores are not comparable. 


The written exam will no longer be available after July 1, 2015


Members administering the exam as a written exam will receive the exam booklets, Scantron answer sheets, and a FedEx envelope.  If you would like to view an examination copy of the paper exam version, the cost is $105 (including shipping cost.) The cost is refundable (except for the $5 shipping) if returned or may be credited toward an order. Download the form from the file library below. 

In order to maintain the integrity of the legacy written exam, it must be administered in a proctored environment.  As the exam proctor it is your responsibility to ensure the integrity of the exam for each student you sponsor. 

We request that you do the following at the end of the exam:

  1. Destroy all exam booklets.
  2. Return Scantron sheets for grading in the FedEx envelope. It is important that the enclosed Scantron forms for the exam be used. We will be unable to provide an item analysis of your exam results if a different form is used.
  3. Inform us by email at  that you have sent the Scantron sheets. 

You will receive email notification when we receive your answer sheets. The exam will be scored within 48 hours, and the results will be emailed to you in an Excel spreadsheet containing the exam booklet numbers and corresponding raw scores, and your class averages. Item analysis data is no longer available.
