ASQ Updates its CSQE Body of Knowledge

Summary: [This abstract is based on the author's abstract.] Periodic updates are required to ensure the ASQ Certified Software Quality Engineer (CSQE) program continues to reflect accepted professional practices. An individual receives the CSQE designation as a result of successfully completing the certification exam. In turn, the exam is built on the content described in the current CSQE Body of Knowledge (BoK). This BoK has just undergone its latest revision. This article describes the revision process, starting with a job analysis survey. After survey results were used to modify the BoK, corresponding changes were made to the question bank for the certification exam. Finally, an updated draft exam was produced and evaluated. Specific changes that were made to the BoK are available online and will be discussed in a subsequent article.
