The community responsible for licensing occupations and professions is large and diverse. Among others, it includes agency administrators and other staff, board members, testing experts, attorneys and the candidates themselves. All of these groups need a solid basis in the fundamentals of a fair examinations process.
For over two decades, CLEAR's Examination Resources and Advisory Committee members have shared their expertise with this community. The most enduring of these contributions is a semi-annual publication, CLEAR Exam Review: the leading North American journal on testing issues for the professional and occupational regulatory community.
