CPLP Exam: Assess

Assess (For the Knowledge Exam)

Where should I begin?

As you begin your preparation, the best starting point is to determine what topic areas to focus on as you study. By assessing your current knowledge of the Areas of Expertise (AOEs) you can determine your areas of strength as well as areas where you need to further build your knowledge. Then you can weave this information into a study plan that is specifically tailored to YOU.

What is my knowledge level?

There are several ways you can determine your knowledge level of the topics that will appear on the exam:

  • Complete a Self-Assessment - The CPLP Exam covers all the Areas of Expertise (AOEs) outlined in the ATD Competency Model. To assess your level of knowledge/familiarity with the topics in each of the AOEs, complete the CPLP Knowledge Self-Assessment. Click here to take the assessment.
  • Take the Practice CPLP Exam – What better way to assess how you would do on the CPLP exam than by taking a practice exam? The CPLP practice exam (pCPLP) contains 100 questions that mirror those on the actual CPLP exam. Take the pCPLP so you can evaluate your strengths and weaknesses within each AOE.

After you complete the pCPLP and have a deeper understanding of the types of questions to expect on the Areas of Expertise, look back to see how you rated yourself on the Self-Assessment. Modify your ratings for any areas (as needed). Cross reference your ratings as you continue to plan your study approach. Consider the weightings for each AOE on the exam, since that may influence your study planning as well.
