“The ABP is committed to ensuring examination content is secure,” says Linda Althouse, PhD, Vice President for Assessment at the ABP. “Breaches compromise the integrity of the certification process.”
The revised policy states that the ABP might:
- Combine exam and testing site data with other information that the ABP collects about individuals, including personal information, training information, and survey information;
- Collect additional information about an individual through interviews, publicly available information, internet searches, or third-party investigators; and
- Use this information to evaluate whether an individual has potentially cheated on an exam, provided a fraudulent identity at a testing site, colluded with other test-takers, or engaged in other exam-related misconduct.
