Q:Are re-registration fees to be paid in full?

A:Yes, they must be paid in full.

Q:Can I pay my re-registration fee by credit card over the phone?

A:No, we need your actual signature as proof of payment. ABPS will provide the necessary form needed to complete credit card transactions. These can either be obtained online or by calling our office directly at 415-553-3083.

Q:Will I automatically receive a receipt from ABPS once my re-registration fees are paid?

A:Your cancelled check or credit card statement will serve as your receipt. However, we will gladly provide you with a receipt upon request.

Q:Can I use somebody else's credit card to make payment?

A:Yes, but you must provide us with the credit card holder's name, complete billing address, signature, and phone number.

Q:Which credit cards do you accept?

A:Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Q:When can I expect to receive my annual re-registration fees invoice?

A:Re-registration fees invoices are mailed out between July 15th and July 31st.

Q: What is the difference between computer adaptive testing (CAT) and the kind of written examination I took when I certified?

A:The type of content being tested is the same, only the method of administering the examination has changed. A computer adaptive test is a computer-based examination which is automatically tailored to the ability level of the individual examinee. As each question is answered, the computer assesses the response and selects the next question based on whether the previous answer was right or wrong. Questions become progressively more or less difficult as the program assesses and establishes your ability level. The difficulty level of each question is determined by the question's statistical performance in ABPS examinations. Computer adaptive testing is graded on the level of difficulty achieved, not on the number of correct answers. Because of this, you may not skip questions or change an answer once you have proceeded to the next question. Adaptive testing uses a large pool of questions and your set of questions will be unique to you.

Q:If I can't go back and answer questions or answer easy questions first, will I do worse on the examination?

A:Be forewarned that adaptive tests can feel harder than paper and pencil tests. However, studies show that people perform almost identically on adaptive tests as they do with paper and pencil examinations. The only performance difference is that people with disabilities tend to perform better on adaptive tests.

Q:If I purposefully miss answers, will my exam be easier?

A:Answering questions incorrectly will result in an easier examination. However, since the examination is graded on difficulty, not percentage of correct answers, purposefully answering questions incorrectly will result in a lower score. To pass the examination, you must answer every question to the best of your ability.

Q:I rarely use computers. Will I be at a disadvantage compared to my colleagues?

A:Computer adaptive tests are very straightforward and easy to navigate. There are instructions at the beginning of the examination and onsite proctors will be available to help you learn very quickly how to navigate the test.

Q:What subjects will I be tested for on the examination?

A:Please see ABPS Document 500, "Examination Blueprints (PDF)," which describes the areas tested based on the examination being taken. Also see ABPS Documents Library.

Q:Where are the testing sites?

A:We offer 200 testing sites nationwide.

Q:What are the testing sites like?

A:All Pearson VUE test centers, regardless of type, are designed to provide a consistent, standardized testing experience in a quiet, distraction-free environment that promotes peak test taker performance. All centers are designed to provide candidates with the most comfort possible during the examination process. Testing rooms are separate from the registration, screening, and score reporting rooms so that candidates are not distracted by other activity occurring at the center.

Q:Can Board Qualified members advertise their status?

A:No. To advertise your ABPS status, you must be Board Certified. Please see our Advertising Guidelines for detailed information.
