Introducing the CGFNS Self-Assessment

Studying for the CGFNS Qualifying Exam®? We’ve got you covered.

We created the web-based CGFNS Self-Assessment tool to help you prepare for the CGFNS Qualifying Exam® using REAL questions from previous exams. You can even customize it to reflect your learning style: Practice taking the exam under the same conditions as the Qualifying Exam or work at your own pace! Read on for details.

Choose a Self-Assessment Form

There are two forms of the Self-Assessment available for $45USD each.

  • Both forms were created using the same format as the Qualifying Exam and include 150 questions, all of which have appeared on a previous form of the actual Qualifying Exam.
  • Take the Self-Assessment as many times as you want: just purchase another order for the format you want to retake!

Choose a Timing Option

Standard-Paced: Practice under the same conditions as the real thing.

  • The delivery and timing are the same as the Qualifying Exam. You are permitted 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete the Self-Assessment and cannot return to a completed or skipped question. The performance feedback you receive may be more meaningful if you opt for the standard pacing.

Self-Paced: Take the assessment at your own pace, even in multiple sittings!

  • Taking the Self-Assessment using self-paced timing permits you to learn more about the content, item formats and examination interface prior to taking the Qualifying Exam. You will still get performance feedback, even if you didn’t mimic the same timing as the Qualifying Exam.

Get Performance Feedback ASAP

You will receive a test completion notice with your performance feedback immediately after completing either form of the Self-Assessment. This is true for both standard- and self-paced Self-Assessments.

The feedback includes the percentage of items you answered correctly for the whole assessment and in each of the main topic areas.

How do you stack up against actual CGFNS Qualifying Exam® takers?

Performance interpretation guidelines for both forms of the Self-Assessment are available below so you can compare your performance to the performance of individuals who encountered the same test questions on an actual Qualifying Exam®.

CGFNS will not provide answers to individual test questions or rationales.

Performance Interpretation Guidelines

Self-Assessment Form A

Normative information is provided for percent correct scores based on the performance of two different groups of examinees who took these same questions on the Qualifying Exam. The first column contains the percentage of items on the assessment for each of the topic areas. The next two columns provide performance information based on all examinees who took these same questions on the Qualifying Exam. The final two columns provide performance information for all passing examinees who took these same questions on the Qualifying Exam.

These norms are provided to help you to identify your relative strengths and weaknesses to assist you as you prepare for the Qualifying Exam. CGFNS does not guarantee that any individual performance on the Self-Assessment will predict performance on the Qualifying Exam and cautions users of this self-assessment against making any predictive inferences.

Self-Assessment Form B

Normative information is provided for percent correct scores based on the performance of two different groups of examinees who took these same questions on the Qualifying Exam. The first column contains the percentage of items on the assessment for each of the topic areas. The next two columns provide performance information based on all examinees who took these same questions on the Qualifying Exam. The final two columns provide performance information for all passing examinees who took these same questions on the Qualifying Exam.

These norms are provided to help you to identify your relative strengths and weaknesses to assist you as you prepare for the Qualifying Exam.
