Changes to CMP-IS:  Impacts for May 2017 Exam and Beyond

What does this change mean for those taking the May 2017 exam and subsequent exams? Really, just a change in the emphasis or numbers of items (exam questions) in some domains, and the elimination of Domain J items (2 questions, replaced by the CMP Code of Ethics).

There are a few new skill statements, however, addition of items to the CMP exam occurs over time. The writing of new items, whether for a new skill or for established ones, goes through a rigorous process before they are included as items on an exam. That includes subject matter expert (CMP) writing, psychometric re-writes, Item Review panel analysis, confirmation of references in study texts, pretesting, more statistical analysis, more committee review and, finally, live testing.

In summary, candidates should not be concerned or expecting major changes with this iteration of the CMP-IS.
