NEW IN 2020!

For candidate convenience and the overall security of the CAE exam, ASAE moved to a computer-based administration this Spring. The exam is administered through Scantron, the firm that supports ASAE’s exam quality and integrity. With the move to computer-based testing, candidates will have a two-week window to take the exam at one of Scantron’s testing sites throughout the U.S. and internationally.

The CAE exam will be given on Scantron’s PASS system. A PASS demo is accessible here: for candidates’ review and practice.

The CAE Commission believes the transition to computer-based testing increases accessibility to the exam and tightens test security. Candidates will not receive results immediately after they complete the exam at a testing center as the post-exam process is not changing. After the test, the questions are analyzed statistically to identify if there are any hidden flaws. Questions that appear to be flawed are reviewed by the CAE Examination Committee to determine how that question should be scored. After these issues are resolved, the test is scored and results are finalized. With this careful process, candidates will be sent results approximately six weeks after the exam testing window closes.
