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. It’s specifically tailored to enable candidates to meet their business school admission goals from anywhere they can. The availability of both test centers and online exam options makes the executive assessment exam convenient for candidates. With this kind of flexibility, candidates have peace of mind and the confidence to plan their exam strategy. The EA online appointments are available all year round, around the clock. Usually, the test centers avail the testing dates on a rolling basis.

Exam Structure

The online version of the EA exam 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 which you should complete in 30 minutes.
  • Verbal Reasoning – has 14 questions which you should complete in 30 minutes
  • Quantitative reasoning – has 14 questions which you should complete in 30 minutes. 

You must complete these sections in that particular order. You can’t 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.

Executive Assessment 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. Since the two score scales are identical, your Executive Assessment Online exam scores are directly comparable to scores from the test center-based exam. 

If you take the EA online, you can send your results to as many programs as you want. You can choose a program before taking the test or after you have taken it and received your results. Log in to the Executive Assessment site to access the ability to manage which programs receive your executive assessment results. The official results are usually 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.
