A*S*K Institute

Policies and Procedures

The A*S*K Business Institute is a not-for-profit partnership whose sole purpose is to document student learning based on standards and performance indicators validated through various secondary and primary research procedures.

Certification by A*S*K Institute should not be considered a statement of employability or of specific qualifications for any specific job, duty, or task. Certification intends to provide one measure of an examinee's knowledge and understanding of the requirements of business as documented through the identified performance indicators.

There are no prerequisites for examination. Any individual may participate in the testing program subject to the rules, policies, or procedures of the institution sponsoring the test site.

Individuals may access any given exam no more than one time per calendar quarter.

Exam administrators and proctors acknowledge that A*S*K exams are proprietary and have substantive monetary value. They further acknowledge liability for any action that results in the actual breach of security of exam questions or in a perceived breach of security that would diminish the overall value of the exams, certificates, Institute, or sponsoring organizations.

An independent exam proctor is required for any administration of any A*S*K exam, regardless of the number of examinees, nature of the examinees, or setting of the exams. Said proctor must meet the criteria set forth by A*S*K Institute.

Upon purchasing exam credits, test administrators will receive an e-mail containing an attachment with instructions and forms that are similar to this document, which will guide them through the testing process.
