Control Group Exam Participation:  
Seeking 1,000 CDE & CDP Candidates

IDC is working with Assessment Systems to introduce a new assessment instrument in 2018. This new and rigorous exam will be based on reliable, valid and defensible data, and will allow IDC to fulfill its accreditation requirements. We are seeking 500 CDP and 500 CDE candidates to participate in a control group by taking this new assessment. 

Through April 30th, Candidates may retake the exam at no cost until achieving the cut score requirement of 80%. Each candidate will complete a brief online tutorial prior to the test, and varying levels of remediation will be provided for those who do not pass the exam. All other requirements remain the same. The cost for Control Group participation is $599, regardless of which exam or whether the individual is a member or non-member. Please note that this option does not include a study guide.  

Control Group participation is available on a first come, first served basis, with registration available from now through April 30, 2018. 

Participation is ideal for large D&I Offices, Diversity Councils, Resource Groups, individuals who did not pass a prior exam with 80% or greater, Certificate program participants, designess whose credentials have lapsed, and CDP designees who wish to achieve the CDE credential.
