ASE Makes Certification Tests More Intuitive

Posted on August 7, 2017

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has changed the computer format technicians use to take tests to earn ASE certification.

The changes to the Prometric test sites were effective Aug. 1, 2017.

ASE says the new format will “offer an enhanced experience for professionals when taking tests to earn ASE certification.”

Test questions will look the same as before, but new features have been added. For example, a new list of test question numbers appears on the left side of the screen. These change color when a question is answered, allowing test takers to quickly see unanswered questions and go to them with one click.

Other new features include:

  • text highlighting and answer strike-out options, helping test takers note important details and rule out known incorrect answers;
  • a progress bar showing the percentage of questions completed, to help with pacing; and
  • answer boxes that change color when selected, allowing at-a-glance confirmation of the answer chosen.

“We want to bring our ASE certification candidates the best in new testing technology,” says Tim Zilke, CEO and president. “The new platform makes testing more intuitive than ever before, allowing the test taker to more easily focus on the questions and answers.”

An online demo of the updated platform can be viewed at www.ase.com/ASEdemo.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence was established in 1972 as a non-profit organization to help improve the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians and parts specialists. Today, there are over a quarter of a million ASE Certified professionals at work in dealerships, independent shops, collision repair shops, auto parts stores, fleets, schools and colleges throughout the country. In addition, over 50,000 students currently hold ASE student certification credentials.
