The Item Writing Committee is responsible for Board Certification test development and works with our current test partner, Authentic Testing, to develop, update and maintain exam items.
- Each committee is made up of no less than three ABO Diplomate volunteers and one member of the Board or the Executive Director.
- The committees meet at regular intervals prior to each examination. Meetings may be through conference call or online interaction.
- The committees, in conjunction with Authentic Testing, develop new test items.
- All committee members are required to attend either online or in-person item writing events.
