Exam taker information regarding the new beta exams:
Some technical requirements:
If there is no DAMA Chapter near you, remote proctoring is available through the ICCP office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Since the beta exams are free exams, you must start your exam between 9:00 am – 2:30 pm Central Time (US). The ICCP office requires two weeks’ notice for remote proctoring appointments. If you are taking a regular (non-beta) exam at $285 each, you have more flexibility in scheduling.
Keep in mind that this exam is a beta exam. The scores have to be reviewed and adjusted by the DAMA / ICCP team after all the results have been received. Scores may be adjusted upwards, but will NOT be adjusted downwards on review of the performance of questions.
Unadjusted scores are immediately available after the exam has been completed. Official scores will be available after the DAMA / ICCP team meets again. Official profiles will only go out for paid exams. The ICCP office anticipates that all Data Integration & Interoperability beta exam testers will have their scores by Dec. 15, 2012. Contact the ICCP if you have not received your scores by Dec. 15, 2012.
