ASSESSMENT

The CIR® online assessment reflects the real world. It is an open-book exam that requires you to use the AMA Guides. You will refer to the Guides to obtain information and solve

cases. Therefore, it is also a very effective learning tool — you will increase your ability to apply the Guides. Traditional onsite examinations do not provide this learning experience.
