Accordingly, the CAPM certification will be reflective of this and will incorporate approaches across the value-delivery spectrum. The examination will test the skills that entry-and associate-level individuals need in order to understand project management fundamentals as well as predictive, adaptive, and business analysis principles. These approaches will be found throughout the four domain areas listed above and are not isolated to any particular domain or task. The exact number of items for each question type and approach may vary by form. The scoring model is periodically reviewed by scoring experts to ensure valid assessment of knowledge and skills.
