Self Assessment Exams

Online self assessment exams are available to students preparing for the BOC certification exam or ATs seeking an assessment of their continuing education needs. Content experts who develop the BOC certification exam wrote the questions in these self assessment exams, which will help to determine areas of strength and weakness in athletic training for future study or to identify continuing education needs.

The BOC offers integrated self assessment exams in test and study modes, and each integrated self assessment exam includes 75 total questions that are representative of the questions on the BOC certification exam including multiple-choice, multi-select and drag-and-drop as well as a focused testlet comprised of 5 questions that reference a common scenario. Please note that some of the multiple-choice questions on each version of the integrated self assessment exam may be the same as the respective version of the previously-available multiple-choice self assessment exam. Although the content areas of the self assessment exams are comparable to those of the actual certification exam, the questions included in the self assessment exams will never appear on a future certification exam.
