MDCB Announces Performance-Based Testing (PBT)

In 2020, for the first time, a small number of performance-based test (PBT) questions will be included on the CMD exam. Performance-based questions measure candidates' ability to apply learned skills and knowledge. It is considered to be the next generation in certification testing.

Approved exam candidates will be provided login credentials to access the third-party platform allowing them to familiarize themselves and practice within the platform. PBT items on the exam will be delivered as multiple-choice items. Candidates will be able to respond after linking to and viewing the third-party platform.
