CVPM Question Drive
Share |

As a CVPM member, I cannot impress upon you enough how important your role is in the continuation of the CVPM examination validation process. CVPM member support is essential to maintaining a quality certification program. By submitting new potential examination questions CVPMs ensure that the examination stays relevant and maintains high standards. 

 

The CVPM Board accepts question submissions year round as well as offers question writing session(s) annually facilitated by a psychometrician.

 

The CVPM Board strongly encourages each CVPM to submit at least one new examination item annually. Question topics must directly relate to the job of the practice manager as detailed in the most current CVPM Task Analysis Outline (link provided below).

 

The CVPM Board takes the confidentiality of our examination process very seriously. All CVPMs and/or Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who participate in examination development must sign a Confidentiality Agreement. By signing the confidentiality policy you agree that you do not currently nor will you participate in the development or presentation of any materials, outlines, tests, or courses specifically designed to prepare applicants for the CVPM certification examination for at least three years after the date of the agreement. This does not preclude the normal activities of educational instruction.

CVPM members who submit five (5) potential test questions annually receive one (1) continuing education credit toward their renewal.

 

Provided below is the current CVPM Study Guide and Recommended Read List - please use this as a resource for your question development. The Task Analysis Outline included in the Study Guide identifies the content areas represented on the examination. The Test Blueprint, also included in the Study Guide, identifies the weight that each domain represents on the examination. The Recommended Reading List provides the current list of publications that have been used in the documentation and validation of examination questions in the database.

 

MOST IMPORTANT: All question submissions must be referenced by a source - include the publication title, author, publication (if applicable, i.e., Second Edition), page number and date. Question submissions without source detail will not be considered.

 

You may submit your examination items by fax, 888-795-4520, or through the online question submission form below. If submitting by fax each question must be presented on a completed Question Drafting Sheet. A Question Drafting Sheet is provided for your use below.

 

A Question Writing Guide is available to help you develop quality questions.
