Assessment Test - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is an assessment test and how is it different from a sample test?

A: An assessment test is specifically designed to be a predictor of success on the actual exam. A sample test is not. A sample test is designed to give you an idea of the content and format of the questions that will be on the certification exam. Performance on the sample test is NOT an indicator of performance on the certification exam and this should not be considered an assessment tool.


Q: Do I have to go to a testing center to take a Tivoli assessment test? Are they free?

A: No. Assessment tests are designed to be "low stakes" tests and can be taken through the internet in an unproctored environment. So you can take one at any time, anywhere! Assessment tests cost $30 USD equivalent for each attempt and they can be taken as many times as you want.
