    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers both the test itself and specific aspects of the process that produced it. 1.2 This practice does not include management systems. In this practice, the test itself and its administration, psychometric properties and scoring are addressed. 1.3 This practice primarily addresses individual professional performance certification examinations, although it may be used to evaluate exams used in training, educational, and aptitude contexts. This practice is not intended to address on-site evaluation of workers by supervisors for competence to perform tasks.
