Learn techniques for managing and measuring the performance of a global supply chain using the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model.
To earn your SCOR-P designation, you must pass one exam covering:
The exam consists of 60 multiple-choice questions. Candidates should answer all exam questions, and will have 2 hours to complete the exam.
The SCOR-P exam score range is 200 to 350. Scores 300 points and above are considered passing, and any score 299 points or below is failing.
Exams are graded using a scaled score methodology. This technique ensures equivalent passing standards are maintained from varying difficulties of each exam from one to the next.

Don’t wait until the last minute to schedule your exam. Plan your exam date closely around the time you finish preparing for the exam, so the information is still fresh in your mind. When you’re ready to schedule, visit ascm.org/schedule-exam to request your Authorization to Test and schedule your exam.
APICS exams are administered via computer-based testing (CBT) at Pearson VUE test centers worldwide, and online through the OnVue system.
Stay calm and focused during the exam, and use the entire time allotted to complete the exam. If you find that the first few questions are giving you trouble, flag them for review and move on until you find one you can answer with certainty. Read carefully and review your answers before submitting the exam.
With the SCOR app, you’re just a tap away from easily accessing SCOR’s four main areas – process, performance, practices, and people – or you can do a simple search for a level one or level two definition. It’s easy to quickly view definitions and to understand the relationships between interrelated elements.
The SCOR mobile application is available for download through iTunes or Google Play.
