What’s changed about AAPC exams?

In the last several years, our members have taken over 100,000 electronic exams. As of 2024, all AAPC exams are offered electronically — whether you take it at home or at a Meazure Learning testing center. Here are some of the benefits we’ve seen as a result of this change:

+10% improved pass rate

Students are having greater success with electronic exams, and it’s clear in the increased pass rate.

Quicker exam results

Scantrons required a lengthier, more tedious grading process that came with risks like delayed shipments. Electronic exams provide a more efficient process that includes precise and prompt grading.

Greater availability

Now that in-person exams are hosted at Meazure Learning testing centers, availability has increased significantly. Choose the date, time, and exam format that fits your schedule and location best.

Enhanced certification integrity

Involving a proctor who adheres to rigorous standards safeguards the integrity of our exam process. By preventing dishonest practices, we protect the credibility of our credentials.

Allows for testing in a familiar environment

If you suffer from test anxiety, taking the exam at home can make you feel more relaxed and focused,‌ leading to better test performance.

Reduced paper waste

By dropping the need for printed materials, we minimize our ecological footprint and support greener practices.
