The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of the revised Certified Technology Manager (CTM) exam after implementation in order to determine if it is meeting expectations and if further revision is needed. In addition, this study provided a methodology framework for evaluating other similar exams both now and in the future. Three groups benefit from this research. Test-takers can have a fair evaluation of their performance. Test-designers can use the results of the study to improve their question design skills for other exams or revisions to the current CTM exam. The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) and hiring industrial organizations can have confidence that the exam results actually measure the relevant competencies specified by the certificate.
