The green belt exam is an open book test and is governed on the honor system. Candidates can use curriculum materials and notes from the completed course but must complete the exam individually. This is not a group exam. The internet is not considered to be part of the resources available for the test. It should be done individually and will be scored in the same manner. This is a pass/fail test and candidates must get at least a 70% score to receive a pass. Candidates have 30 days to complete your exam. A certificate of completion will be generated to you after which you will need to forward to your instructor, Gail Birks so that the Official Certification can be issued.
The exam is online and will be automatically scored when you have completed all three sections. Noteworthy is that the questions on the online exam are in random order in the respective sections in order to maintain the integrity of the process.
The exam contains three sections...easy, intermediate and advanced. Candidates must get the following number of questions correct from each section to obtain a passing score.
Easy -32 questions out of 50 questions
Intermediate -51 questions out of 80 questions
Advanced -32 questions out of 50 questions
Questions are comprised of True/False, Multiple Choice, “Fill” in the Blank, Short Answer, and diagram/tool recognition. Candidates are encouraged to read through the exam before answering the questions. This will also help in preparing your responses for the test and organizing your notes.
