Salt Lake City, UTAH – June 28, 2016
Certiport (www.certiport.com), a Pearson VUE business, the leading test delivery solution provider for the global workforce and academic markets, today announced the “Certiport Approved” program, designed to identify courseware and practice test products that accurately align to exam objectives for Certiport’s certification programs.
Qualifying products will receive the Certiport Approved seal, a designation that demonstrates to educators that the courseware or practice tests are an excellent tool for preparing students for the certification exam. To qualify a product is reviewed by a team of subject matter experts in an extensive review process that includes verifying exam objective alignment as well as instructional design integrity.
“Educators typically have limited budgets and time, and they need to be as efficient as possible when they choose courseware and practice test solutions for their certification programs,” said Aaron Osmond, general manager, Certiport, a Pearson VUE business. “We started the Certiport Approved program to help educators make the right choice the first time, so they can teach the right concepts and accurately assess student preparation prior to taking the certification exam.”
Certiport recommends a “learn, practice, certify” pattern for passing certification exams. First, students use courseware to learn the key objective domains for the target exam. Then they take practice tests that help them accurately determine their skill and knowledge level prior to taking the certification exam. Last, they take the certification exam after they have learned the material well and practiced it effectively.
“Learn, practice, certify is vital in building a successful certification program,” said Osmond. “Look for the Certiport Approved logo to find the best learning and practice content available in the industry.”
Thus far, learning and practice products from GMetrix, LearnKey and MeasureUp have received the Certiport Approved seal.
