Mastery Test Information

Tab navigation

Mastery tests are used to verify the mastery of knowledge covered in a course or a defined set of learning materials. They are not certification tests, which are designed to validate skills needed in a specific job-role. Rather, mastery tests help to assure an individual has achieved a foundation of knowledge and understanding of a subject matter.

Mastery tests supplement certifications as a method used by IBM to evaluate knowledge of IBM Sales and Technical Professionals. As with certifications, the successful completion of a mastery test may be required for participation in some IBM Business Partner activities.

DM = Test duration in minutes
NQ = Approximate number of questions
PS = Passing score
