Requirements


For all the different training and certification offerings under Adobe Certified Professional: Adobe Captivate, participants are required to have access to:
 

  • Their own laptop/desktop computer, power and internet connection
  • Adobe Captivate 2019 release installed – a free 30-day trial of the latest version of Adobe Captivate can also be downloaded at any time a participant wishes; those without the 2019 release will NOT be able to complete or pass the assessment

 

Exam Requirements

The online certification assessment is proctored for exam security. Participants are required to have access to a microphone and webcam during the entire duration of the exam.

The assessment is an open book exam. Therefore, participants may keep their notes, books, etc. with them, and participants may also have Adobe Captivate open on their machines. However, participants are only allowed to use one monitor during the exam so you will need to toggle back and forth between windows. For more information and answers, please visit the FAQs tab.
 

Virtual Instructor-Led Training Session Requirements
Participants must complete the online curriculum and pre-work beforehand to make optimal use of the virtual training. These sessions will provide hands-on experience of Adobe Captivate as a review of the online curriculum.

Participants will need to download the classroom exercise files (which will be shared a week before the virtual session) and save them on their local drive/desktop. These are required to successfully follow along during the virtual workshop.

Exam Scoring FAQs

  • Q: How does Adobe determine the passing score for an exam?

    A: Adobe determines the passing score for each exam through a well-established industry process. This process involves subject matter experts defining the minimum competence levels required to pass the exam and rating the difficulty level of all exam questions. Adobe uses this subject matter expert feedback and the data from their rating to determine the passing score for each exam. Beginning in January 2020, Adobe exams will display the percentage score achieved by candidates. The passing percentage and scaled scoring of each exam is listed in the exam guides under exam information.

  • Q: What is a scaled score?

    A: A scaled score is a sequence of standardized numbers to which all possible raw scores for an exam are mapped. Adobe uses a scale (that is, a sequence of numbers) from 300 to 700 when reporting your exam score. The raw passing score for each Adobe exam is mapped to the scaled score of 550. Therefore, the passing scaled score for all Adobe exams is 550. All other possible raw scores, from zero to the total number of questions on an exam, are mapped to whole numbers between 300 and 700 on the scale.

  • Q: How is my test score determined?

    A: Your test score is determined by taking the total number of questions answered correctly (called your raw score) and dividing that number by the total number of scored questions.

  • Q: What is the passing score for Adobe Certified Professional: Adobe Captivate exam?

    A: The passing score for Adobe Certified Professional: Adobe Captivate is 70%.

  • Q: Can I use my scaled score to determine what percent of the test questions I got correct?

    A: No, dividing your scaled score by 700 will not provide you with the percentage of questions you got correct in the exam.

  • Q: Why are my past exam records displaying a different score?

    A: Prior to 2020, Adobe used the scaled score format; a sequence of gradated numbers to which all possible raw scores are mapped. Adobe used a scale of 300 to 700, and mapped an exam's passing score to the 550 mark. In 2020, Adobe started reporting the exam's actual percentage score and stopped using the scaled score format.
