Beta Exam Details
The first 60 candidates to register for the Beta exam will be able to take it for FREE! If you are not one of the first 60 candidates, you will still be able to take the Beta exam at a discount of $300 USD. (That’s a savings of $700 off the post-beta production exam MSRP!) The Beta exam is longer than the production exam, because Beta participants will answer all the items in the item pool. Candidates will have 8-hours to complete all multiple-choice items and performance-based tasks. The performance-based tasks will require candidates to solve multiple tasks within the OneStream software environment.
After the Beta period is closed, exam scores and item data are collected. Beta exam information is imported into an exam database and linked to the item IDs and descriptions. Next, Beta candidate comments and classical item statistics or item response theory parameters are generated and reported. The reports are psychometrically analyzed to ensure that the items are valid and reliable. Items may be discarded if they are identified as too difficult or too easy, show evidence of not being clearly understood, are a poor discriminator of knowledge, and so on.
The final steps are to modify the exam with the results of the Beta and psychometric analysis, as well as establish a passing score. Using the raw data from the Beta exam, the Beta participants are scored on the new final production exam. If a candidate passes a Beta exam, he or she will become OneStream Certified.
Due to the amount of time to conduct psychometric analysis, pass/fail results from the Beta exam are not available until approximately five to six weeks after the Beta close date. Candidates will receive an automated email notification once the Beta scores are available.
