New: 2015 Phase 1 Exam - Thursday, March 19, 2015 (Additional information regarding registration and cost will be published as soon as possible.)
For candidates preparing to take this exam, the reading lists will be the same as for the 2014 Examination. Journal articles in print or electronically released before 1 September 2014 will be considered in preparation of the exam.
New: Change in format for multiple choice questions for the ACVP Certifying Examination Starting in 2014, all multiple choice questions on the ACVP certifying examinations will have four potential responses (one correct response and three incorrect responses). The number of possible responses was reduced from five to four based on a review of studies that indicate reducing the number of possible responses from five to four improves the quality of question and has no detrimental effect on the performance/robustness of an examination. It has added benefits in reducing the reading demanded of candidates, as well as, the amount of time and effort required by Examination Committee members to produce and document the fifth response option. We make this change consistent with the advice of the College's testing consultant, Castle Worldwide.
