certification, and a team of psychometrics was mandatory there, so maybe this
is related to an ISO 17024 certification. I  don’t know about the costs though.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span lang=EN-US>Has everyone checked out the document I
uploaded to the OWASP site? </span>There are several perspectives that exist.
One perspective says that Prometric makes it convenient for test takers.
Another perspective says that the financial commitment required by Prometric
may not be wise for OWASP to take on. Another perspective still says that the
US government tends to pay for a significant portion of security-oriented exams
worldwide and they will not consider Prometric exams as they are not ISO 17024
certified. Another perspective says that a US centric model doesn't matter to
those outside the US and maybe they can do Prometric exams, but that makes the
economic model even harder. An endless loop...<br>

determine whether we use Prometric and/or Pearson VUE or not. If we do (and I
support this due to the broad availability of the exam), there are specific
rules on how to write questions, how to categorize them, how many
multiple-choice answers to use, and so on. What is the current status in that
