CPHR Saskatchewan Introduces Computer-Based Testing for NKE
June 20, 2019
Starting in the Fall of 2019, the National Knowledge Exam (NKE) transitioned to computer-based testing (CBT). CPHR Saskatchewan's transition from paper to computers provides members with additional security, efficiency and convenience when writing the NKE, and aligns the Association with industry best practice.
CPHR Canada has partnered with Yardstick to offer members its exam delivery software, Measure: a user-friendly and intuitive exam delivery platform that is used by a wide variety of certification and licensure bodies in Canada, the United States, and globally.
With Measure, exam writers will have access to numerous tools that will aid them in writing the exam while reducing anxiety. This includes:
- the option to bookmark and revisit questions;
- a “notes” feature for members to write and make reference to throughout the exam;
- a question navigator to easily jump back and forth between questions;
- a time remaining clock with optional reminders at specific intervals (e.g. 5 minutes remaining);
- a language toggle (for French speakers);
- accessibility features such as font size increase/decrease;
- a thumbnail presentation of images with magnification feature;
- a “Submit with unanswered question” check;
- a restrictive copy/paste functionality; and
- question count (e.g. ‘Question 1 of 8’).
Measure provides accessibility for all exam writers and creates efficiencies in answering questions in a completely secured environment.
The NKE registration fees will be as follows:
Exam Fee: $400 + GST
Yardstick Seat Fee: $125 + GST.
Adding computer-based testing to the list of offerings is the next step in CPHR Saskatchewan's continued path of growth and advancement for its members and the HR industry.
