Executive assessment online: Everything you need to know

Executive assessment online: Everything you need to know

The Executive Assessment (EA) online is a remote proctored version of the test-center-based Executive Assessment specifically tailored to enable candidates to meet their business school admission goals from the comforts of their homes or from anywhere they can. The convenience and flexibility afforded by having both the test center and online exam options available give the candidates peace of mind and the confidence to plan their exam strategy. Executive Assessment online appointments are available all year round, around the clock. Testing dates are to be made available on a rolling basis.

Exam Structure

The Executive Assessment online has the same structure as the test center Executive Assessment. It has three sections: Integrated reasoning, verbal reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning, in that order. The sections appear as follows:

  • Integrated Reasoning – has 12 questions to be completed in 30 minutes.
  • Verbal Reasoning – has 14 questions to be completed in 30 minutes.
  • Quantitative reasoning – has 14 questions which are to be completed in 30 minutes. 

The sections must be completed in that particular order, and you cannot skip to the next section and come back later to complete a section, however, you can review and make changes to responses within a section. Once you move to the next section, you can no longer make any changes to a previous section. 

EA Online Scoring

For both the section scores and the total score, the Executive assessment online uses the same algorithm and score scale as the test-center-based Executive Assessment. The score scale for each section on the Executive Assessment is 0-20. All sections are equally weighted. The total score scale is 100-200. Because the score scaling for the Section Scores and Total Score is identical, your EA Online exam scores are directly comparable to scores from the test center-based exam. 

If you take the executive assessment online, you will be free to send your results to as many programs as you want. You can choose which programs before you take the test, or after you have taken the test and received your results. You can log in to the Executive Assessment site to access the ability to manage which programs receive your executive assessment results. The official results are made available to test takers within seven days of taking the executive assessment. Candidates can find their results on their My Account Dashboard under my results. 

Your online results will be valid for 5 years.
